I do extensive work in AD, adding Computers to the Members of Distribution Groups. What is time consuming and frustrating is that each time I add a computer object to a newly opened group; I have to select the computer object type. Is there a way to set the computer object to default on?

See example:

Command lines or importing fron .CSV files would be more work than just checking the box. looking to set the box to default on
