is there a way to change a setting in microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 2008 so that it does not default to have every field checked when you bring up the edit top xxx rows screen.

it also populates all fields if you use an astrisk in the column.

i would rather have it like the previous version of sql where the * meant use all...  
i often use grouping when researching data and the * then becomes a count field which is very useful

No, there is no such way.

The only thing you can customize for "Edit top xxx rows" feture is the "xxx" value (Tools->Options->SQL Server Object Explorer -> Commands).
