Hi all,

 

Does anyone know how to change the taskbar title? Even for the default project Win32Project1 of Visual Studio it shows the .exe name in the taskbar instead of the Window Title from CreateWindowEx().

Start with for example the first one listed here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb773175(v=vs.85).aspx

Then change the app description and try adding other info and you can see the differences in the "Details" tab of the properties for you .exe in Explorer.
