When I import a shapefile as a vector layer the default setting is always applied for the colouring

enter image description here

It's always a simple fill with a stroke width of 0.26. Every time I end up changing it to a simple line with a stroke width of 0.66 and choosing a unique color

enter image description here

If there's any way to make this a default for importing shapefiles that would be a huge time save.
