Rename your Visual Studio window title

If you often run multiple instances of Visual Studio to edit multiple branches of the same project from different folders, you may find annoying how difficult it is to discover which branch do you currently edit. All instances looks the same on the Windows taskbar:

vs-rename-similar

The Rename Visual Studio Window Title extension may ease your pain by prepending the names of the parent folders into the Visual Studio title bar:

vs-rename-title

Of course the same names appear on the Windows taskbar as well:

vs-rename-taskbar-branches

You can customize the behavior of the extension in the Options dialog:

vs-rename-options

Tiny, but very useful tool.
