Want to learn how to change the default title of Internet Explorer? It’s not so difficult. Just a little registry tweak, and your IE title bar will be changed in no time.

Remember: Back up your registry before making any changes to it.

Now, follow the simple instructions below:

Now, open your Registry Editor (Run > type regedit) and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMain

In the left-pane, right-click and select New > String Value.

Rename the new value to “Window Title” (without quotes). Double-click the new string value you just made, and enter the “new title” in the Data Value: box. This “new title” is your own title you want instead of the default one: Microsoft Internet Explorer.

This trick has been tested and works well with Internet Explorer 6.
