    How to change internet explorer title

    So you noticed that your internet explorer says provided by some company, what if you could remove that or even change the text all together, this tutorial will show you how in a few simple steps.

    conventions used
    • italic text, in green means type the text
    • bold red means caution

    1. go to start, then click run and type regedit press enter
      getting to run
    2. in the window that appears go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Software - Microsoft - Internet Explorer - main

      example 1
      example 2
      example 3
      example 4
      example 5
      example 6
    3. scroll through the list that appears until you find Window Title
      example 7
    4. if it does not appear right click and press new - string type Window Title be sure to use the proper capitalization
      example 8
      example 9
    5. once you have the string you want type what you want internet explorer to say for example pyrodesign>>
    6. open up internet explorer and you should see the new name

    • make sure you edit the right key changing a different one could cause undesired results
    • use only string when creating a key, other types may cause internet explorer to crash.
    • make sure to backup the main file by right-clicking main and selecting export.
