Disable TOR in TorBrowser 9

Iam using whonix with Windows.
And use Tor browser without Tor (/wiki/Tor_Browser_without_Tor)
but in torbrowser 9 this article didnt work.
How i can disable tor?

I am not sure we still need that page.

This page might be replacing it:

But that doesn’t answer your question.

It’s currently undocumented.

Setting these environment varialbes might help.

TOR_HIDE_UPDATE_CHECK_UI=1
TOR_NO_DISPLAY_NETWORK_SETTINGS=1
TOR_HIDE_BROWSER_LOGO=1
TOR_SKIP_CONTROLPORTTEST=1
TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1
TOR_TRANSPROXY=1

(Most relevant to the question is TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1 - that should prevent the integrated Tor from starting - it does so on Linux and might work on Windows too.)
(These are taken from here.)

Please someone research how to set windows environment variable and then add to documentation.

This page documents how https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Other_Operating_Systems

The Tor Launcher is now integrated directly in the Tor Browser rather than as an extension in 9.0.

Only TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1 is needed to disable Tor. The rest aren’t really needed. TOR_HIDE_UPDATE_CHECK_UI=1 might be dangerous as it doesn’t alert the user of updates (I think) and TOR_TRANSPROXY=1 prevents the user from using any other proxy (e.g. if using a different socks port).

TOR_NO_DISPLAY_NETWORK_SETTINGS=1 might not do anything anymore as the onion button is gone.

Already in the wiki page I linked above.

Thank you sir
For other people who carried about that question
Create “start.bat” file:
SET TOR_SKIP_LAUNCH=1
SET TOR_TRANSPROXY=1
“Start Tor Browser.lnk”

SET TOR_TRANSPROXY=1 is neccesary and browser dont work without it.

Thanks for answering !

Created review Tor Browser environment variables (TOR_HIDE_UPDATE_CHECK_UI) for it.
