I want to rename and if possible sort my open Windows in the task bar.

The reason is that some programs I use (pgAdmin, Windows Explorer, Google Chrome) put names on the Windows from which I cannot differentiate what the content may be (e.g. Edit Data - ServerName[*ServerIP*] - DataBase - TableName when I'm only interested in table name and everything after ServerName is not visible).

See… for the renaming part of your question. I don't think you can sort without installing a 3rd party tool though. – ChrisF Dec 9 '10 at 13:32

I've never come across anything to rename windows, but there are a few options for sorting them. I use taskix, does the job for me.
