Change default 'Sort by' from 'Best Match' to 'Date Descending' for Searches

I would like to be able to change my default 'Sort by' from 'Best Match' to 'Date Descending'



as I find I need to do this manually for 95% of my searches to find what I'm looking for quickest.

Is there a way to set 'Date Descending' as my default?
