I don't know if you can alter the defaults in this case, but you could
do the following: when inserting the figure go to the 'LyX options'
tab and change the 'Scale on Screen' as desired, then 'Open new group'
and insert a grp name. Afterwards use 'right-click' on newly inserted
figure and use this group via the checkbox.
