Using Connect As in IIS 8

I am setting up a bunch of websites with a bunch of virtual directories.  In every case, I have to enter the "Connect As.." string with the username and password I've selected for security.  It's the same username for all sites and virtual directories.   Is there a way to enter it only once and have it be the default user for all sites?

IIS 8 on Windows Server 2012

does the user account have full access to the website folders (Right mouse click, properties, security tab)?

Yes it does.    I created a user account and gave it full access just for the purpose of IIS and Coldfusion.
It's just a pain entering that user and login 4-5 times for every website and I am afraid of having to ever change the password - if it changes would I have to go in and reenter it everywhere?
I am wondering if I can enter it once and just refer to it?   The options are "specific user"   or "pass-through" which I understand I should not be using.
