Inside a command prompt window (cmd.exe) changing the title is very simple:

Title Any Chosen Name

Here are a couple of applets that will change the title name for any visible window:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/windowtitle/

I need an applet with command support. I don't want to open a new window to change
the title of another window.

Just to be clear, I'm not trying to permanently change a window title. The title change
should be temporary, only when a window is visible.

It seems like there should be a command line app that changes a window title. I've
googled variations on words like "command support change window title." Can't
find anything.

I do not understand why some one would want to do this?

I create complex scripts that open and close windows, apps, services, etc.

When many windows are open with similar or identical titles, the script must be carefully
constructed using a zillion boolean operators (like and, or, not). A command supported app
that can temporarily change window titles would be enormously helpful.

These scripts from AutoHotKey and Stack Overflow will do the job:

OK if that works for you, I just never have that many windows open that I can not see what they are.
