Default language pair in Trados Studio 2009

I am new to Trados, so please forgive me if I've missed something simple.
When I installed the programme, the language pair US English > German was pre-loaded, and comes up as a default pair every time I open a new document. It says that the Source language is auto-detected, but it's not!
As I only translate in one pair, FR>EN, it would be much easier for me if I could just have FR>EN in my options, because I wouldn't have to set the language pair every time I open a new document.
I have been into the Tools>options and deleted US English to German, but this doesn't seem to make any difference.
Can anyone advise me as to how to solve this?
Many thanks,
