How can I turn off the prompt when I try to save the file in Emacs?

I mean every time I do C-xs, emacs always ask "Save file xxx?"

How can I disable this prompt?

You're looking for the command C-x C-s (keep holding control when you hit the "s"). That doesn't prompt before save.

thanks!!!!!!!!! – portoalet Jun 7 '10 at 3:26
@lydonchandra- C-x s (what you had been using) attempts to save all files and buffers while ivarley's recommendation is just for the current file/buffer. – Ray Vega Jun 16 '10 at 6:50
@RayVega yeah.. C-u C-x s would save all without prompting – barlop Sep 3 '13 at 20:01
