I don't think it is possible while you copy using Windows Explorer method. You only have "Yes to all" with which it will ask only once.

What kind of file? And how do you copy it?

This is a securityfeature in windows that you can not live without.. Think about the malicious creeps out there that would hack their way into a defenceless system without any fileprotection.

There are a number of ways to do this from the command line.  The simplest is XCOPY with the /C /H /R /Y switches.  ROBOCOPY from the 2003 Resource Kit Tools is more configurable and reliable.

If you want to do it through Windows Explorer then it looks like this utility will set it up for you:

I haven't tried it, but it is free and open source.

i have a list of files of type jpg which are correctly named, i'm performing a 'save as' function from coreldraw to replace them with the correct picture.
i want to avoid the hassle of clicking yes to replace.

Then you are out of luck!

There is no way to change this behaviour in Windows, and thank whatever for that!

Save them to another directory and then move them all at once using xcopy, robocopy, or PerigeeCopy.
