Can I change the default related to in global action tasks?

In the screenshot you can see it automatically recommends searchnig for a contact and account but with this action buttion it would always be related to an opportunity.  Can we default it to opportunity without having to click the arrow and select it? User-added image

Thanks for the answers!

I did find a good workaround to this:

Object Manager > Choose Object > Page Layout  > Salesforce 1 Action Buttons > Drag to Options at Top

By doing the above it will make it as a button in the object you chose.  It will then auto populate that field based on the object you made it available.

Anil & Mayank were also correct because there is no way to do this on the global action page layout.
