Helm comes with its own buffer listing commands that exclude helm buffers. Try M-x helm-buffers-list or M-x helm-mini (does the same, but adds more sources, like recently closed files).

  • Suppose I open 10 buffers. If I can use prev-buffer (C-x left) / next-buffer (C-x right) to go to prev/next buffers. It's very comfortable. But I need when I do this to skip some buffers. E.g. buffers whose names start with helm-xxx. Is it possible? Sep 13, 2018 at 8:37
