Hi Glenn,
Brief experimentation suggests this possibility (show command line  
with Favorites... Command Line):

alias mypreset1 preset apply inter 1; sel disulfide; sel up; disp  
sel; ~sel

Then you can just execute the shorter command:

Many variations are possible, like additionally coloring the  
cysteines.  If all cysteines rather than just the disulfide-bonded  
ones are desired, it is even simpler:

alias mypreset1 preset apply inter 1; disp :cys
