Hello all,

@Andrey: Thanks a lot for your suggestion: This got me on the right track!

 

The final malefactor is the "Allow user to minimize window" checkbox. You have to check this to get your window title as taskbar button name; otherwise you only get the name of the executable.

To avoid TWO taskbar buttons for the executable, you also have to uncheck the "Show front panel when loaded" option (by the way: you can also solve this by adding "HideRootWindow = True" to the executable's INI file, but this file is rewritten every time you rebuild your executable).

 

See attached image.

 

Regards,

cpschnuffel

I thought your intent was to change the name that appears in the taskbar after the application has been built. ????
