Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

For example, when I run top I usually press "C" so I can see the explicit command being run not the executable name if you will.

Is there a way I can modify top such that when I do:

% top 

The result is initially displaying the command line and not the executable command?

For example I see initially:

chromium-browser

But would prefer to see:

/usr/lib64/chromium-browser/chromium-browser --type=plugin --plugin-pat

It depends on the version of top, but after pressing the "c", press "W" which will save your preferences in your ~/.toprc file.
