I am documenting some software that has a right-click menu item: Set as Default Configuration.

Once you've set it, the menu changes to: Unset as Default Configuration.

That just seems wrong to me. The only definitions I can find for the word (other than as a programming term) are adjectives:

not mounted (an unset gem)
not hardened (unset cement)

I might be able to get this changed if I can come up with a better idea. I don't think they're going to want to make the menu show all possible configurations, which is what makes sense to me.

Remove as Default Configuration?

Thanks for any ideas.
