Easier in the GUI
Authored by: BobWestfield on May 24, '02 10:43:11AM

You can do this in the GUI.

Open the terminal.

Go to File > Preferences.

Click the Window icon at the top of the preferences pane.

Click "Custom Title" and enter whatever you want the title to be in the terminal window.

GUI easier, command line faster

But if you want to quickly set the title of a window, it's hard to beat title foobar for raw speed! And if you often set window titles, the speed savings will be greatly magnified by using the script.

Personally, I use the other hints that have been posted here to just dynamically set the window title to the current command ... works great for me!
