TITLE – Windows CMD Command

Change the title displayed above the CMD window.

The TITLE command is typically used in a batch file to give the script window a meaningful name.

The default title for the CMD shell is %comspec% however, since the title can be re-defined in a program shortcut, the title is typically set to “Command Prompt”.

In a batch file, you can set the title to match the name of the batch file with:
TITLE %~nx0

The START command, used to start a program in a separate window also has an option to specify a title for the new Window.

If you call a batch script in a new CMD session, then any TITLE set within the batch file will revert when the second CMD session ends.

TITLE is an internal command.
