Hi @Tom Montgomery,
Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!
Maybe you can try the extension: Customize Visual Studio Window Title.

Hello, can you tell me how you want to change the title?
I'd like to be able to test the path of the current solution for certain strings, and if they exist, add the name of a folder in that path to the text in the title bar (or compact title or whatever it's called). I can do all of this except the actual setting of the title text.
There was an extension called "Visual Studio Window Title Changer" that I used to use that allowed you to use logic to calculate the new name, but that no longer exists (I think because the extensibility changes broke it).
In an ideal world there would be a way to change this, and VS would still update it with the "debugging" etc text it puts there, but I'm happy to lose that if it's the only way to actually change the title.
So a solution path like
would get a title in VS of "project_name - app1" if the folder 'foldertosearch' exists, for a more concreate example.
