For this sort of thing, I prefer lmgtfy:
The title bar is located on the top of the window.Duh!
The leftmost item on the title bar is the window icon. Click it to
display the Window menu or doubleclick it to close the window.
Ah, not on my rxvt (nor cmd) windows it ain't!
The next item on the title bar is the window's sequence number. This
helps you to distinguish between different windows using the same
Again, not on my rxvt (nor cmd) windows it ain't!
Next on the title bar is displayed the remote computer's host name.
For example, a second window associated with a connection to a host
computer called 'remote' would display as |2:remote|.
I think you are assuming a specific - unnamed - ssh client. That's not
the case here...
After the host name, the next item on the title bar is the name of the
settings file in use. If you are not using a settings file that has
been saved with a specific file name (using the *Save As* option on
the *File* menu), a settings file called |default| is in use.
Again, this has nothing to do with the OP's post.
If you have changed the settings without saving them, an asterisk
(|*|) is displayed on the title bar, after the name of the current
settings file (for example: |default*|). For information on saving the
changed settings, see Section Saving Settings
The last text item on the title bar is the name of the client,
None of the rest of your cutsy post applies either.
Thanks for being so... helpful...
