This lightweight extension will detect whenever two instances of Visual Studio are running with the same window title (or not, can be configured) and change the window title of Visual Studio to include a folder tree with a configurable min depth and max depth distance from the solution/project file, or using special tags.
With default settings, SolutionFolder – Microsoft Visual Studio (Administrator) will be rewritten as SolutionFolderParent\SolutionFolder – Microsoft Visual Studio (Administrator).
Special tags available are:
- [documentName] name of the active document or window;
- [solutionName] name of the active solution;
- [parentX] parent folder at the specified depth X, e.g. 1 for document/solution file parent folder;
- [parentPath] current solution path or, if no solution open, document path, with depth range as set in settings;
‘ *’ will be added at the end automatically to identify that the title is being improved.
This is particularly useful when branching a solution/project: it becomes possible to easily identify which branch you are working on, in the case where both would have the same solution/project name.
