a Script for automatic answer 'Y' on powershell, no need user response

Copper Contributor

Hi All,


I'm new to Powershell.


I try to run this script Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "group name" -member "email member" on Powershell. every time I run this script I will get a response to typing 'Y'. Is there any complete script so I don't need to type 'Y'? I've tried added Echo Y but it's not working.

That's why we have the -Confirm switch. And as a new to PowerShell, do yourself a favor and make a habit of checking the help for any cmdlet you want to run.

This is the command

Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity MyDisGroup -Member administrator -Confirm:$false



Hi, I'm using same switch to remove ie from systems with PowerShell script not working, I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, pls help to get the correct command


Disable-WindowsOptionalFeature -FeatureName Internet-Explorer-Optional-amd64 -Online -Confirm



I think you forget to put -Confirm:$false on the script
