How do i change the name/title of taskbar icon in windows xp? for example, I got 3 firefoxes with similar websites opened (the same portal but different webpages) and I want to differentiate them. I want to set the windows of all taskbar icons according to my wish(titles) to any string.. Is there some utility? Google didn't really help.. :"(

Try wsTaskborg Taskbar Organizer. Using it, you can create your own groups and assign a title to each group. If u want, you can also create a 1-member group and assign any title of your choice.

There's not really a general one for ALL programs, but you can customize the firefox titles with this addon.

yeah, thx, but I use firefox at work for fun only... I need that thing for IE primarily. – Greenleader Jul 27 '10 at 15:06
By default IE displays the page title first. You can edit the "Internet Explorer" portion by following directions to edit the registry. – JNK Jul 27 '10 at 15:10
OK, whatever, but situation is still same, I need it to start with "A" or "B" or whatever I want :) – Greenleader Jul 28 '10 at 4:42
