In htop F10 is used to exit but it conflicts with Terminal function to show menu instead.

How can we unbind F10 in terminal?

  1. Edit -> Preferences -> General:

  2. Uncheck "Enable the accelerator key (F10 by default)"

Terminal settings

If this is the only conflict you could also use Ctrl + c or just q to quit htop.
