Photoshop: Toggle "Include Tool Settings" on Existing Brush Presets

This is not new news; it's been nearly two years that specific brush presets have been tied to specific tools, making it impossible to switch between tools on the same brush, for instance, while using KYLE brushes.

I fully understand that it is possible to hold down Command+Option on a mac while selecting a brush in order to stay on your current tool. However, it should be obvious that adding more keystrokes to a very simple operation would frustrate everyone who paints in Photoshop, disrupting the deeply-ingrained workflows for people who have been using the software for decades. One look at Photoshop and Adobe forums on this topic will reveal the exasperation of veteran Photoshop users dealing with this. Personally, the addition of these keystroke for every brush change made my workflow SO much slower that I had to spend three hours of my workday re-defining every single individual one of my Brushes with "Include Tool Settings" unchecked, so that I could avoid having to do so.

A simple solution to this issue would be the ability to toggle this "Include Tool Settings" feature on EXISTING brush presets, especially the ability to do so in BATCHES instead of individually. This seems like a simple fix and it would satisfy a lot of frustrated users.

Please, no replies explaining existing functions that I've already mentioned; pressing Command+Option with EVERY change of brush, or having to re-define my entire brush library one by one with a setting unchecked is NOT a satisfactory or sustainable solution to this infuriating issue!

Just to clarify: You created the Brushes in the library with that setting yourself? 

One option you didn’t mention is saving an abr-file and loading that in Photoshop CC 2017, exporting it from there and loading that in CC 2019 again. 

Edit: The advantage being that one can put a lot of brushes in one abr-file which would come close to the »bulk«-requirement.

Two years, and this incredibly stupid "feature"  by breaking brush for maximum frustrating way still not solved. Its still so stupid and so frustrating. Im need recreate every brush im want to use without this idiotic chekbox "Use Tool Settings".  
Im just not have words. Unbelievable.   What next, Adobe? Broken  type tools working only if you  press Alt and Ctrl keys when typing?

Voted, it would make so much sense!
