This tutorial will show how to create a custom title for Internet Explorer. Note, some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) may require you to keep the window title to whatever they changed it. Make sure to check your license agreement first. In addition, this modifies the Registry, so make sure to back the Registry up first.

  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type "regedit" (without quotes)
  4. Click OK

    Run Regedit

  5. Make sure My Computer is selected

    Regedit

  6. Click File then Export and save it in a place where you will remember (this step creates a backup file of the registry in case something goes wrong) and click OK.

    Export Registry

  7. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain
  8. If Internet Explorer already has a title other than Microsoft Internet Explorer, but you are allowed to change it (if the title is the default one, skip to step 9):

    • Right-click on the key "Window Title" and select Modify

      Modify String

    • In the Value data text box type the name you wish to appear as the window title.

      Modify Window Title String

    • Click OK
    • Close the Registry Editor and when you restart IE, the window title should be changed


  9. If the title of IE is Microsoft Internet Explorer, you probably will not have a key called Window Title, so you will have to make one (if there is a Window Title key, follow step 8 instead).

    • Right-click in the white space and select New then String Value

      New Registry String

    • In the text box, type "Window Title" (without quotes)
    • Right-click on the key "Window Title" and select Modify

      Modify String

    • In the Value data text box type the name you wish to appear as the window title.

      Modify Window Title String

    • Click OK
    • Close the Registry Editor and when you restart IE, the window title should be changed
