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.

Straight from Ned Pyle (AD MCM):

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.
