Topic "window title: add servername in front"

Currently a winscp window title looks like this:
"/path/path/path/path - account@servername - WinSCP"

Would be cool, to have the window title like this:
"servername - /path/path/path/path - account@server - WinSCP"

Reason for request:
In the windows task bar you can see the first ~10 characters of a window title. If you have several winscp windows open, it's sometimes difficult to select the correct window in the task bar.
Usually the first 10 letters of a servers path do not help distinguishing several open winscp sessions.

Please read documentation. If that does not help, come back.

BTW, the behavior you are seeing is not default, so you had to set it like that... Wink

I would like to customize the Window Title when I use WinSCP via command line. I have numerous scripts running on the same machine. When a window gets left behind, it's difficult to determine which script needs editing. Thanks, James

You can setup a specific stored session for each of your script.

Still it would be nice to specify title on the command line. I have lots of hosts accessed via on demand generated SSH tunnels. It will show me user@localhost - not the name of the server.
