Changing the default values for stroke (or any layer style) in After Effects

I've been searching for what I thought would be a seemingly simple solution and have not found it.

Does anyone know how to change the default values for stroke in After Effects? It's typically 3 point and red. I spend a lot of time changing it in many compositions to 5 point and black to match a corporate style. I know it's not a hard thing to change, but when you have to do it frequently, it really bogs down the creative process.

I imagine that if there is a solution to this, it's probably the same to change any of the default values for the layer styles available.

you can save the layer style as a preset. then you can apply that preset to layers as needed.

a little more work than having a default setting, but you can apply the preset to multiple layers at a time.
