EPC Title bar changer
« on: May 17, 2007, 09:38:05 PM »
Hi
        Has anyone used this  Epc title bar changer    http://www.epcsoft.net/    They give a 15 day supposedly free trial , but I cant see how one is able to test it out without buying it , perhaps someone here might have a look at it .
If it really did what they claim I would buy it , The help file is useless

And I haven't found any other program that will allow one to edit the title bar ??????

Try TitleChanger 1.0

Run the program, then press ScrollLock to change the title of the active window!

Ahk source included!

Make fake bugs? open my computer, and change the name to Notepad, and then show your friend and say something like "look, my computer got hacked, and now when I open notepad my computer is inside of it!" that is one idea.

Hi  justice  as you might notice the more charts that are open ,because the have the same icon it is hard to differentiate between them . at least if I can change some part of the titlebar ,then by just running the cursor over them i can easily find the right one at any given time .
One coder has programmed the titlebar so that it contains six differant world times ,which is great  and as he says it makes use of wasted space

I also found a program that easily allows you to change the titlebar  and the reason they give is  say if you are running a program which you don't want some to notice i.e in the bosses time ... but  temporary as it restores back to normal on reopening

Hi Justice      I have downloaded titlechanger, I now have it in the taskbar click on it and nothing happens .
Right click and it gives a menu   suspend script, pause script and exit .
Ant idea why it doesn't work as shown in your post image .  ;)

  thanks

Thanks for trying it out! It's really easy:

Run titlechanger (once), then press ScrollLock whenever you want to change a window. The scrolllock key sits on your keyboard between PrintScreen and Pause/Break.
You don't need to click on titlechanger or any systemtray icons :)

I like this little program   because I have at least two programs with annoying titles:

title1.gif
title2.gif

But it would so nice if you, justice, will add some memory to the program, so when placed in Start it will auto-change these titles, also after a PC restart, please! - kind of a permanent change, so to speak.

I have no idea how to use ahk.
