C-x C-f


C-x C-f runs the command find-file
   which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `files'.
(find-file FILENAME &optional WILDCARDS)

Edit file FILENAME.
Switch to a buffer visiting file FILENAME,
creating one if none already exists.
Interactively, or if WILDCARDS is non-nil in a call from Lisp,
expand wildcards (if any) and visit multiple files.  Wildcard expansion
can be suppressed by setting `find-file-wildcards'.
