With the Windows title command it is possible to change title of the current cmd window, like:

title Alfa

But when logged in as "Administrator" this makes the title "Administrator: Alfa", so when the Windows taskbar is at the side of the monitor, it looks:

Thus not much relevant information.

Is there a way to change the title of a cmd Window, without getting the initial user information?

It is OK if it requires additional scripting or programming in e.g. Python or C.

Note: Jonno pointed to this "How to remove 'Administrator:' from the command prompt title" question and answer at ServerFault, so looks like there may not be any easy answer.

  • Administrator: %0 is not found in the W10 cmd.exe.mui file, so that specific hack will not work in W10. – Moab Feb 13 '16 at 19:51
