    Negative.  You can do custom searches and save them, but I do not believe there is a way to change this behavior directly.

    Even I wanted to change this, but it seems that it is hard coded and cannot be changed.

    Nope, sorry. The Find tool does not provide for user customization – even starting it over without closing dsa.msc does not remember your last setting.

    try this:
    - right click the "user and Computers" shortcut and choose "Author".
    - do what ever you need to do...
    - save the console befor exiting

    - open the console like you always do.

    since I'm not in a position to test this, I'm not sure it will work, but I do know that there are some possible  customizations made this way.
