If I'm working in a directory with its own TAGS file, and then I move to another directory, with its own TAGS file, I always get asked this question:

Keep current list of tags tables also? (y or n)

I never want to bring the list of tags tables with me between directories, so I'd like to default the answer to this question to n, how can I do that?

1 Answer 1



(setq tags-add-tables nil)

seems to do the trick
