When saving a file and making changes to it one can revert using File->Revert in the menu or by entering


before reverting a dialog window opens to ask if you are sure. I would like to skip this dialog by automatically answering with yes.

Is that possible?


Here is a picture of the dialog.

Add False as a second argument to FrontEndToken for "Revert":

FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["Revert", False]]
