Default Filter of Orders in Admin Area

Hey guys,

It looks like the default filter for the orders page within the admin area is based upon the purchased on date and time.  Is there a way to filter these orders by default to status = processing?  This way I don’t have to search through some older orders that haven’t been processed that are mixed together with orders that are complete.  I know it is a pretty simple click of a button, but is there a way to change the default filter for this?

Thanks!

Found the fix for this. 

/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Sales/Order/Grid.php

Find (Line 42):

$this->setDefaultSort('created_at');

Replace with:

$this->setDefaultSort('status');

Enjoy!
