How to make the bezier curve vertex handles always visible?

The points are only visible, when I select them, instead of always showing.

Where should I look for settings for this?

vertex selected

vertex deselected

While in Edit Mode in a curve, got the the 3D View header, under the overlays popover, towards the end under Curve Edit Mode change Handles to All.

enter image description here

If you want this as default behavior for all new files, open a new instance of Blender, add a curve, enter Edit Mode and change this setting.

Delete the curve and save your startup file from File > Defaults > Save Startup File.

This will affect all newly created file only, existing files will only display all handles if you have the Load UI option disabled from Edit Preferences > Save & Load > Blend Files > Load UI.
