A Quick UI Question - Default tab in the Command Manager

Hi everyone,


After recently getting my company to purchase solidworks and jumping into 2011 I've found a couple of little things in the UI bothering me as the last version I used back at university was 2008. I was wondering if there was a quick solution to my problem.


The issue involves the default displayed tabs in the command manager. Previously I found after performing a feature such as an extrusion, creating the sketch and finalising the feature itself the command manager would revert back to the features tab once the process was finished. Now I find it remains in the sketch tab after the feature has been finished. Is there a way to set the feature tab as the default so it will always revert back to features after completing the previous feature and associated sketch?


While not a major concern it is just an issue affecting the flow of working, having the switch back as I tend to work straight from the features tab more than I do the sketch tab.
