But in a more global context, how does one modify the default menu selections that are already checked upon starting Mathematica? There must be some way to modify a setting in the initialization notebook, but I haven't found how. I have been looking for some way to uncheck the selection with Options Inspector in my notebook, but I have not had any success finding the key. I imagine there should be some way to make the change in a given notebook that gets saved with the notebook, but I haven't discovered how to do it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
