Feature Request: Open Process Explorer with collapsed "wininit" or "services" node tree

I often use Process explorer to investigate running processes.

In 95% of all cases the process of interest run under "winlogon".
So I always have to either scroll down or collapse the tree below "wininit" or "services".

This is tedious and user unfriendly on the long-run.

So may I ask for a new option to open Process Explorer at startup with collapsed "wininit" or "services" subtree?

Alternatively Process Explorer should remember current collapsed/expanded state and re-use it at next startup.

Thank you
Peter

Million upvotes for this feature! With one correction: most processes sit under "explorer.exe" (Windows still "visual" OS, which cannot exist w/o window).

Ideally if user can call popup on process and select "Stay collapsed". I'm annoyed of billion threads under "Opera" or "Chromium" - these guys also better to collapse.
