I found that a killed buffer is still shown by a buffer created earlier by C-x C-b. How can we get the up-to-date buffer list?


g calls revert-buffer. Not updating each time is by design and can be seen as an advantage.

  • thanks. M-g or C-g? What advantage is it?

    The shortcut is a plain g.

You can enable automatic updating of the buffer list by adding to your ~/.emacs: (add-hook 'Buffer-menu-mode-hook 'auto-revert-mode)
