Utility – RenameWindow

This is a little utility for renaming windows. The purpose is primarily to provide known titles to allow programs such as OBS to find the window reliably. A couple of example of where this can be used are Notion and Discord.

Both applications have dynamic window titles which means even if you select the ‘Match title, otherwise find window of same executable’ match priority OBS may struggle to find it.

Enter ‘renamewindow.exe’… a small console application that is designed to find and then set the title of windows. Searches can use the EXE name, the title and the window class.

Source code is available on Github along with some instructions.

The exe and a sample configuration file are available here.
