```Konrad,

Here are some variations:

Plot[x, {x, 1, 3},
AxesOrigin -> {0, 0},
AxesLabel -> {x, y},
PlotLabel -> "Sample Plot"];

Plot[x, {x, 1, 3},
PlotRange -> {{0, 3}, {0, 3}},
AxesLabel -> {x, y},
PlotLabel -> "Sample Plot"];

Plot[x, {x, 1, 3},
Frame -> True,
PlotRange -> {{-0.01, 4}, {-0.01, 4}},
FrameLabel -> {x, y},
PlotLabel -> "Sample Plot"];

Plot[x, {x, 1, 3},
Frame -> {True, True, False, False},
PlotRange -> {{-0.01, 4}, {-0.01, 4}},
FrameLabel -> {x, y},
PlotLabel -> "Sample Plot"];

You could define an automatic plot expression that incorporates your choices
as follows:

Needs["Graphics`Colors`"]

EndePlotType1[f_] :=
Plot[f, {x, 1, 3},
PlotStyle -> Blue,
PlotRange -> {{0, 3}, {0, 3}},
AxesLabel -> {x, y},
PlotLabel -> "Sample Plot"];

EndePlotType1[x];

However this is only occasionally useful. Often every plot needs detailed
adjustment to look its best. It is difficult to make one template that will
fit everything you will want to plot. A graphic is a work of art. It's
actually fun working them over and touching them up using the various
Mathematica capabilities - once you get to know them.

Many times, as i try to plot functions, i need to explicitly
tell Mathematica to put the AxisOrigin to origo, where
they belong. That is easily done BUT:
1) Sometimes the axes won't meat. They seem to be a little
to short. How do i stop it?
2) Is there a way of setting a standard parameters so that
e.g. AxisOrigin always is at {0,0}, or the color of plots is
{red, blue, yellow}. without me having to request it every
single times?
