I'd like to stop refreshing the list of processes. My problem is it refreshes itself too often.
How can I do it? I use

Most easy way is suspending the terminal with CTRLS, and unfreezing with CTRLQ while
htop or any other flowing display is running. (Thanks to Keith for this reminder of easy tip)
Also, you can change refresh interval with putting
-d key before running the
htop for example:
# htop -d 100
The number 100 indicates the delay between updates, in tenths of seconds. You can change the refresh interval as you like. But there is no pausing support for now.
Alternatively, you can use screen capture tools for freezing the moment in graphical interface if you are on any desktop environment. In the short hand you can press PrtScr key at any time. Or you can install and use any kind of screenshot or screen recorder applications.
