With no documents open double click on your file change that to 20%k, and then change your stroke to .5 k. This will set your default for new docuements. But you want to do this on documents that are already created. For that you need to do 3 things.

1) Create an object style of your 20% gray rectangle
2) Add a shortcut.
(To add a keyboard shortcut, position the insertion point in the Shortcut box, and make sure Num Lock is turned on. Then hold down any combination of Shift, Alt, and Ctrl (Windows) or Shift, Option, and Command (Mac OS), and press a number on the numeric keypad. You cannot use letters or non-keypad numbers for defining style shortcuts.)
3) Create a library a rectangle with that object style applied

Now if you open a document, just drag the item in your library to the page and delete it. this will add that object style to your document. You can then use an assigned shortcut
