How to prevent ShowSize from scanning when it starts

in Scanning

The newer ShowSize has this option ON by default so that it doesn’t start the scan till you click on the button “Start processing this folder.” But you can switch off that option too.

Is it possible to prevent ShowSize from automatically starting to scan (whatever machine was last scanned) when the program is started?

Click on the menu “Tools–Process a folder as soon as it is selected.” This switches off that option. When it is OFF, ShowSize won’t scan automatically unless you press a button called “Start Processing” in the right pane.

In the older versions of ShowSize, this menu was called “Automatic Processing.”
