    To Add a Custom Internet Explorer Window Title

    Using Registry Editor, add a String value named Window Title to the following key in the registry:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
    The data value is the title you want to appear on the Internet Explorer window.

    NOTE: In Windows NT, the value should be of type REG_SZ instead of String.
    To Remove a Custom Internet Explorer Window Title

    Using Registry Editor, delete the following value in the registry:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Window Title
    When you delete this value, “Microsoft Internet Explorer” becomes the default window title.

    You can alternatively set it using Registry Editor.

    Go to.

    HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-511046055-2504618594-3414916567-1001\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\

    There, create new String value.

    set Title to ‘Window Title’ without ”
    value – it is your wish.

    Do you guys know about gpedit? group policy editing is what i am talking here. it should work in every theme not only in windows classic. Browser title can be set as “windows explorer presented by Suman”.
    problem is dimmed Apply button while using gpedit to enable browser title?

      perhaps microsoft prevent this feature.

      To get the title bar back in IE9, is right click in an empty space (lbelow the Home, Star…) and select “Show tabs on a separate row”.

    “Well, if you want to restore the old title bar in Internet Explorer 9 just follow the steps below to restore the Classic Theme in Vista or Windows 7 and fix the missing title bar in IE9.
    1) Right click anywhere in a blank area on your Windows desktop
    2) Click on Personalize
    3) Click on Theme Change the Theme to Windows Classic and click OK
    4) Open your Internet Explorer 9 and your title bar should now be visible with “the title of the web page showing at the top of the screen.”
    *I haven’t tried it but comments lead me to believe it works.

    Microsoft done away with the titlebar in I.E.9
    You can get it working with the help of hacks and theme changing or you could just switch your browser to another one.
