Ripple trim - simple trim toggle

When I try to trim any clip by dragging the edge of a clip in my sequence instead of the usual "trim" tool (red icon) I get a "ripple-trim" tool (yellow icon). Using it messes up my timeline as it pulls placement of other clips as I try to trim only one of them. 
I can switch between these tools by holding CTRL, but it switches back as soon as I relesase the button. I'm sure there's a permanent toogle between these tools, I just can's seem to find it.

Many of us prefer the selection in the Preferences you're complaining about, because it is so freaking handy.

 

Hold over the cut, you get the Rolling tool, hold next to the cut, the Ripple tool. Easy and fast way to work, getting options without needing to do anything. Hold the Ctrl/Cmd key down and you get basic trim. Three tools, you only need a modifier for one.

I prefer the ripple trim too. One hand on the mouse, one hand on the keyboard.

I can clearly see the usefullness of it, however it does not fit a job I'm doing at the time and I was already quite used to it being the other way around, so having it swithced only annoyed me.
