How to change the default columns in a payee report

The default columns in a Payee Report (right click on a register entry) include columns I rarely need and mostly don't want unless I ask for it such as "account", or "tax item".  Is there a way to change the default columns?  If so, how?

    No, you cannot change the defaults. 
    You can customize a report the way you want it and then save that version as a saved report. You can the include that in your Quicken toolbar if you use it frequently.

    How do I make a request for a future update to include that option?  I would think that would be a needed capability. Especially considering that you have to edit the report to add other accounts to the report.

    You can post an idea under the https://community.quicken.com/categories/reports-%28windows%29 area.  I would not have high hopes of implementation. The reports tools as a whole have been pretty much unchanged for years. I would only see your idea taking hold as part of a complete redo of reports.

    Perhaps I should have pointed you to this post 
    https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7644736/default-report-format#latest

    I see you started a new idea. I'll suggest to a moderator that merge yours be merged into that one which has some substantially similar comments and suggestions.
