    Answer: Because more people asked for it to remain active between sessions than the other way round. Remember that this is a toggle, so if you want to disable it, just press Alt-E again. You certainly do not have to edit your rufus.ini file or the registry to disable it again.
    Or if you don't know if it's enabled or disabled, just press Alt-E a couple of times to find out, whilst looking at the status bar from Rufus.

    Remember that designing software is always striving to strike a balance between contradictory requests from many users, and, whereas you may think that everybody will want a temporary BIOS+UEFI mode, the reality might be that you are in the minority and that a much greater number of people will want the opposite...

    Sir,

    Sub : Feedback & Request.

    (i) Rufus is not only a great app for writing distros but its a powerful Format Tool as well. Rufus has saved me 4-5 pen drives. The pen drives were not listing in the 'Computer' folder. They were listed in the inbuilt Disk Management but it was not possible to format the drive & make it reusable there. Then Rufus came to my rescue, It recognized them, formatted them & made them reusable. The greatest thing : It writes logs as well which come crucial for troubleshooting. All applause!

    (ii) As we move from 2.x to 3.x versions, there is a little depreciation. In 2.x versions, one need not write anything on the pen drive but can choose Format : Quick / Full & Check for bad blocks directly. In 3.x versions, you have to write at least MS-DOS. Then the 'Format' & 'Check for bad blocks' options are opened / available. That is still not a problem.

    (iii) But In 2.x versions, It shows you the percentage status when you choose Full / Slow format but its not there in 3.x versions.

    So, Why to lose on that bonus ?

    Thanks & Regards. ...
