I think this might be impossible, but is there a way to set the title of a puTTY window to the file that vim has opened? All my windows just say vim right now.

In vim issue :set title and make sure that PuTTY is not blocking the remote changing of tilte: Properties -> Terminal -> Features -> Disable remote-controlled window title changing.
