What's the best way to change the VS 2022 title bar text from within my extension's InitializeAsync()?

I'm trying to change the VS 2022 IDE title bar text, and the current available extensions don't do what I want. I'm currently using the default "short title" or "compact title" or whatever it's called, so that's what I'm trying to change.

The extension documentation makes it incredibly difficult to ever find what you need to do, so does anyone know? I'm guessing a service I can get asynchronously would fit best in my InitializeAsync(), but I don't if one exists.

    Hi @Tom Montgomery, 

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A! 

    Maybe you can try the extension: Customize Visual Studio Window Title
