Effects in the Effects Control panel should default to "closed" not "open"

When I select a layer in the timeline panel, said layer shows up in Effects Controls with All its effects open. ie: If I copy 4 effects (all closed) from one layer, then paste them to a different layer, they are all open on the new placement and I must close them to continue working in an organized fashion, (I train people and think it is best to only have open what you are working on, not everything at once) So, the first thing I do now in version 23.5 is take the time to close them all except the one I am working on. In the past, they defaulted to closed (I believe). I would prefer this, default to closed, then I'll open the one I am working on and save a nano-second. If I save enough nano-seconds over the course of the day, perhaps I'll be able to get more sleep and work better. Thank you.
