Change IE (Internet Explorer) Title
« on: February 04, 2006, 10:35:18 AM »
Many times IE will be tagged with extra text after the page title.
AOL and other ISPs often add an indentifying message.
This registry edit explains how to remove this text or add new text.

[color=red:284455wk]Only do this if you feel comfortable using regedit and know the consequences of making a mistake.
Always save your registry before making changes. [/color:284455wk]


To remove what's there now...

1. Navigate the registry to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
2. Find Window Title and the string value attached to this should be the additional text.
3. You can delete this string and IE should default back to normal. Just pull up a new browser window and see your results.

To personalize your version of IE...

1. Navigate the registry to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
2. Most likely the Window Title string will not be there, and you will need to create it. Goto the Edit menu -> New -> String Value.
3. Right click on this newly created string.
4. Rename it Window Title
5. Double click on Window Title and change the value to whatever text you wish.
