    Maintain Aspect Ration question

    johnt53984649 Level 2

      So, I'm using Adobe Photoshop CC 2014.  Whenever I want to resize a picture, I usually do it while maintaining the same aspect ratio.  In order for me to do this, I have to hold in shift as I resize the picture.  However, is it possible for this to be reversed?  Can I make it so that, normally, whenever I resize the picture/layer, it will maintain the same aspect ratio, but whenever I hold shift, then it won't?  I know that there's the option to maintain the same aspect ratio under the transform controls, but it's annoying for me to have to turn that on EVERY single time I want to resize something; I'd like it to be on by default.  Is this possible, and if so, how?

       

      Also, when it comes to transform controls, is there a button, somewhere, that immediately shows them?  I can only see the transform controls immediately after transforming some object or layer.  I would like to be able to see the transform controls prior to making any type of transformation.
