Would be awesome if someone can add an explanation for each

Most of these are useless.

These ones work:

/b : Batch mode
/r : Suppress dialogs (Useful to hide the journal dialog when you run more than one instance of sw)
/m : Run a macro.
/d : Open in developer mode.  See Visual below.

@BigCrazyAl : /m opens sw without the splash screen ?

The /m argument is used to run a macro, however it appears to load SW without the splash screen altogether whether a macro is specified or not, in my testing at least.

Edit: Additionally, /D adds a Developer Tools menu to the toolbar when a part file is open.

– I do not have a clue what they do, though

Found here with a few more

Thanks for the visual. Wonder what those options do…
