declutter htop display by disabling thread display

htop is great for viewing processes on Unix-like systems. It has the unfortunate behavior of overwriting changes to a manually written ~/.htoprc. It seems the best way to disable threads is to remember the following:

  • capital H: toggle user thread display
  • capital K: toggle kernel thread display

This helps declutter the process tracking display.
