Windows 7: How do I remove application's name from document window label ?

How do I remove application's name from document window label ?


I have an issue with Programmer's Notepad displaying the name in all document windows in the taskbar, which is long enough to basically hide the filename.

It's not a program's issue, it just doesn't have an option to remove it, but I've been trying to force it with Cheat Engine and it didn't work, finds like 10 entries with string list but does nothing, there's several instances of it in the program but they didn't change either, i replaced the string by letters, not adding or taking any.

This is so with other programs, stuff like windows explorer and web browsers don't have this problem.

I actually don't have a problem on the document window, but on the taskbar, whether minimized or not.

This is pretty annoying, and slows down multi-tasking a lot. Thanks for any ideas, i already sent a tweet to the author and pending a response.

Maybe this is something that's done by Windows on default and applications need to set a config to remove it, then it could be done globally for all kinds of programs ...

Can't find anything about it on the web, found some barely similar post from 2003 that's completely useless.

Google sucks so much sometimes, when i type "window" in it starts displaying results for "windows explorer" ... i really hate SEO bs.

I know of no way to do this, short of modding the OS completely, including system files which is a cause of concern security wise.
