What the S&R dialogue box opens with depends on 2 things:

 - The option "Show 'old' text in Search/Replace and LoF dbox"

 - The scope set in Global Choices > Windows > Search & Replace

If the 'Show old' option is on then the dialogue box will open with the
engine used for the last replace. If the option is off, the engine set
in Global Choices will be used.

So, you'd have to set the 'Show old' option off and set the global
engine to 'Advanced'.

Doing it via Keystroke doesn't seem possible. The engine field is a
toggle and you have no way of knowing its current value nor can you set
the value explicitly.
