How do I get my key fob to unlock all doors with one button press?

I have a 2017 Forester Limited and I may be losing my mind but I could swear than when I first got the car and was looking around through the menus, I saw an option to do this. Today I tried to find it because I'm getting annoyed at having to press the button twice to unlock all the doors but much to my frustration I can't seem to find it. I'm wondering if maybe I just imagined seeing it earlier.

I found a video from Groove Subaru that shows how to do this but when I go into the same menu he's demonstrating, there is no option to change which doors unlock when you press the button. The video shows that on the center display right next to the air conditioning display, you can go into the Car Settings sub menu and there is an option to change it but I don't have this under the Car Settings sub menu. I also scrolled through all the settings in the menus in the instrument console display but nothing there either.

Am I missing something? Did I just imagine it? Is the ability to change which doors unlock with a single button press only available on the Touring model and not on the Limited?

Hmm, I thought you could change it with the MFD settings as well. I looked on my 2016 XT Premium and it isn't there either. This might be one you need the dealer to change?

EDIT: I checked the owners manual and it does not state anything about being able to change this. A search through my service manual does not either.

I think it can be changed for the keyless access (where you touch the door handle and it unlocks) and you can choose the drivers door only or all doors.

That setting does not change it for the key fob unlock button though. I don't think that can be changed.

Well that's disappointing.
