Changing Window Name in Taskbar
I apologize if this has been asked before, but I've literally spent the past hour searching for a solution to my problem.

When my test macro changes a window's title bar text (using setwindowtext), the taskbar name does not change. Note that I am running this in Windows XP.

I'm hoping that this isn't too involved, and again I apologize if I've missed something obvious.
If setwintext does not change taskbar button, probably the button actually belongs to other window. Some programs use other window to add taskbar button. For example MS Office likes to do such things. The window is is somehow hidden, eg very small. Maybe it is owner window of the main window. Find the window and change its text too.
