The Swift Console program allows user to specify command line options when the program is launched. Such options can modify the way the program starts, eliminating the need for manual setup in GUI (Graphic User Interface), or to enable hidden features. Options include selecting device communication interface and port, start data recording, setting window size and disable firmware update prompts. 

A complete list of command line options is provided in the Swift Console User Manual in Appendix A.
