Well unfortunately the merits are part of the equation. Everything can
be done. It would be relatively simple to set up a hook to intercept the creation of the dialog and press the button for you, for example, but is it actually worth the coding effort and having a program constantly running just for this purpose especially if it's only once in a blue moon requirement? Alternatively it may be possible to locate and rework the dialog so that it always shows all details but again that's gonna take time and effort from someone which almost certainly could be better spent.
It may seem like a trivial matter to you but if MS didn't think it worth the effort to make this an option you've got to assume that it will not be a trivial matter to undo all the knots and retie them according to your own peccadillos!
So the answer is 'yes, it can be done' but the point is that it cannot be done easily so 'how much does it matter to you?' is really the only question that ... er ... matters if you want someone to find a way for you.
