How can I change the default answer from ‘No’ to ‘Yes’ when creating desktop shortcuts?

Using Windows 7 Ultimate with Internet Explorer 8.

How can I change the default answer that my mouse goes to from “No” to “Yes” when I right click a webpage, or a picture, etc. to drop a shortcut to my desktop?

You would think the default would be “Yes” since I right clicked and then clicked on “create a shortcut” from the drop down menu. I mean I already said to “create a shortcut”!? And I know it’s only another click, but some days I will have 20 or more shortcuts when doing some research online.

I’ve searched throughout the registry for a “D-Word” value to change but have had no luck. Google and Ask, didn’t have any answers either so maybe you can help?

    The default value of GUI prompts usually is hard coded into the software. I don't really see how to change it without reverse engineering.

    If it's a save dialog ALT + S should do the proper input, for a YesNo prompt ALT + Y should make it faster.
