IE Hack - Change or Modify IE Titlebar

Bored with seeing the same "Microsoft Internet Explorer" title in IE?

[Note: This trick involves registry editing. Any wrong step and it will cause problems. Be sure to take a backup of your registry before editing]

Tested with IE 6 on Windows XP.
1. Go to Start >> Run. Type regedit and press Enter to open Registry editor.
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main.
3. Right-click a blank space in the left pane and create a new String value. Rename it to Window Title.
4. Double click the newly created item and set its data value to whatever you want. This data value is the title you want to appear in the Internet Explorer title bar.
