Is there a pref for minimum track height?

My tracks spend a lot of time at their minimum display height, to fit as many as possible on the screen at once.
But at that size, it’s not possible to get to the color control button without dropping down a new automation track instead. It’s annoying, especially when creating new tracks, to have to select the new tracks and drag them to a taller size to set them up, before returning them to their minimum.

Can anyone think of a faster way for me to set up tracks?
Just a few pixels taller than the current default minimum would make me happy.
