For the commands here that ask you for confirmation, is there a "Force Confirm" flag we can send, like

DisplayFusionCommand.exe -windowpositionprofilesave "ABCD" -y

or something of that nature? I'd like to use this in a batch command but all it does is pop-up the confirmation dialog and I have to manually click "Yes".

There are some settings in the Advanced Settings window for disabling some of the confirmation prompts. We're planning to add more for the other types (Window Position Profiles Save/Load) as well.
