Personalize Internet Explorer's Title

Internet Explorer ( IE ) displays the title of the page you are viewing followed by - Microsoft Internet Explorer if its a standard version of IE. If you have a custom version created with the IEAK (IE admin kit) of IE it will probably have your company name. If you downloaded your IE from an ISP, the IE title will be branded, for example, -Provided by America Online. You want to change the fixed brand of IE, you can use the following registry hack in Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows XP:

Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
Name: Window Title
Type: REG_SZ
Value: your choice of text, Wayne's IE, or blank

You have to restart IE for this to take effect.
