Each time I run my code it produces 100 figures. So, I have to waste my time and save each one of them. Is there a command that can do that work for me by saving all the figures at once?

m=1;
title("S31 Plot Measurement Number ("+m+")")
xlabel('Delay')
ylabel('Mag(S31)')
saveas(gcf,"S31_plot_"+name+"_Measurement_No_"+m+".fig")
close(gcf)
m=m+1;

No, there is no such command. But it is easy to write one:
FolderName = tempdir; % Your destination folder
FigList = findobj(allchild(0), 'flat', 'Type', 'figure');
for iFig = 1:length(FigList)
FigHandle = FigList(iFig);
FigName = get(FigHandle, 'Name');
savefig(FigHandle, fullfile(FolderName, FigName, '.fig'));
end
Adjust the FigName to your needs.

If they load backwards, I'm guessing findobj is LIFO. Maybe try
savefig(FigList(end:-1:1),filename)
instead?

Missed a make current step: set(0, 'CurrentFigure', figureHandle)
FolderName = tempdir; % Your destination folder
FigList = findobj(allchild(0), 'flat', 'Type', 'figure');
for iFig = 1:length(FigList)
FigHandle = FigList(iFig);
FigName = num2str(get(FigHandle, 'Number'));
set(0, 'CurrentFigure', FigHandle);
savefig(fullfile(FolderName, [FigName '.fig']));
end

Based on the answers, it means there is no 1 line of code which can save all open plots?

FolderName = 'xx'; % Your destination folder
FigList = findobj(allchild(0), 'flat', 'Type', 'figure');
for iFig = 1:length(FigList)
FigHandle = FigList(iFig);
FigName = ['Fig' num2str(iFig)];
savefig(FigHandle, fullfile(FolderName, [FigName '.fig']));
saveas(FigHandle, fullfile(FolderName, [FigName '.png']));
% saveas(FigHandle,filename,formattype)
end
