Why don't you create a new session with all the changes you want and save it?

To save a session: first go through the rest of the configuration box setting up all the options you want. Then come back to the Session panel. Enter a name for the saved session in the ‘Saved Sessions’ input box. (The server name is often a good choice for a saved session name.) Then press the ‘Save’ button. Your saved session name should now appear in the list box. When connecting to the server, click on the session name you just created to load the saved options.

To automate the logon process, you need to use ssh key sharing. Create public-private key-pair using PuTTYgen (check this link for details: Using public keys for SSH authentication ) and save the private key somewhere.

Then, copy the public key from the "Public key for pasting into OpenSSH authorized_keys file" text filed and paste it in the /home/username/.ssh/authorized_keys file. Now, execute the following:
Code:
chmod 700 /home/username/.ssh
chmod 600 /home/username/.ssh/authorized_keys

Now, load the previously saved private key in Pageant (can be downloaded from the same putty download site) and you are good to go.
