In top I can press o to add filters. My question is how I can clear those filters.

I googled around and it is not easy to find an answer. From the help page, I found that Ctrl + O can be used to display the active filters. There the prompt says press Enter to resume. No other option is provided, such as amending a filter or deleting a filter.


I guess you found this out already, but just for the sake of others running into this question when googling, pressing = should reset all filters added with o when running top.
