Change program name as seen in Taskbar

By pwall ·
How can I change the name of a program as it is seen in the taskbar running NT? For example if I open MS Word in the taskbar a short long box appears with these words inside "Microsoft Word - Doc". I want to change what appears in that short long box.
My problem is that there is a DOS program I need users to run and they do not recognize the program by what is displayed in the Taskbar. If I could rename the Taskbar display that would be very cool.

Thanks in advance,

Pippin

I am assuming you run the program from a shortcut. In the shortcut properties under program there is a box at the very top that has the name that users see on their taskbar in it. This can be changed tio something more meaningful.

To change the name you only have to right click on the program and click on properties and make the changes in the dialogue box,in dos you donot have to change the pif files you may be refering to.
