To disable the merged view in `htop` (which combines threads with their parent processes), you can follow these steps: 1. Launch `htop` by typing `htop` in your terminal and pressing Enter. 2. Navigate through the options at the bottom of the `htop` window with your keyboard's arrow keys, or press F2 to enter the setup menu directly. 3. Once in the setup menu, use the arrow keys to navigate to the "Display options" panel. 4. Look for an option called "Hide userland process threads" or "Display threads in a different color" (the exact wording can vary based on the version of `htop`). You can also toggle the view by pressing the 'H' key, which toggles threads visibility on and off. 5. Use the space bar to select or deselect this option, depending on what you prefer. 6. After adjusting your settings, press F10 or navigate to the "Done" option and press Enter to save your changes and exit the setup menu. Now `htop` will display processes according to your preference, either with threads merged into their parent process or as separate entries. Remember that your settings will persist across sessions of `htop`, so you don't need to adjust this every time.
