If I insert a minipage environment using auctex LaTeX-environment it asks me for "Position", "Height", "Inner Position" and "Width". However I only want to be asked for "Position" and "Width". How can I achieve this?

AUCTeX in general queries for the next optional argument if the current one is filled with some text and is not a empty string (which is simply hitting RET by the user). For me, when I hit C-c C-e minipage RET, AUCTeX queries for the (Optional) Position and if I leave this empty and hit RET, it takes me directly to the mandatory Width with 1.0\linewidth as default. Maybe you're using a completion infrastructure like vertico which chooses and inserts the first optional argument and then you get queries for more.
