CACLS in a Batch File
I was working with permissions in a directory and remembered the command CACLS to change permissions. I needed this in a script but it ran and prompted the user for a "Y or N".

There is not a "/Y" option for CACLS, which would normally automatically answer "Y". Instead you have to run the command like so: " echo y| cacls folder /g everyone:F ".
