Did you mean: 

Show VI Symbol in Windows Taskbar while coding.


I had this idea for a while and did not find anyone else suggesting it, so heres the Idea:


Usually I have many VIs open at the same time and its annoying to switch between them, because they all have the same symbol in the Taskbar, and all are named "Frontpanel of ..." (rest is cut off)

Why can't Labview show the VIs icon instead? Maybe even with a little label on the icon for frontpanel / block diagramm.

Or is there already a solution for that?

Hope you like the Idea.
