I have a notebook where I want to have all numerical results in the format

xxxxxx.yy

i.e. I want to have exactly two digits behind the decimal point.

Ideally, I would like to write one or two initializing commands at the top of the notebook such that all following computational results are displayed in the above format. E.g., I would like to have 142857.14 as the result of 1000000/7, ideally without any need to issue any extra commands such as N[1000000/7] or similar. I.e., I would like to use Mathematica in this particular notebook like a pocket calculator (but, of course, whithout any loss of the internal precision of the calculations).

Thank you for your help.
