Can we limit the global searches to only active records?

Instead of deleting records, I typically create a status field and mark all records as either active or inactive.  I then filter out inactive records from all reports.  I'm wondering if there is a way that I can filter the search buttons in the same way?  Can I filter the results users get from the search button to include only those records where my status field equals "active"?  I realize they could do this using the advanced search, but I would like to eliminate the need for that step by end users if possible.

I only have this suggestion.  If your users never really need to see Inactive records, then use Role Permissions to not give them access to those records. Then they will not be part their world.
