VSCommands Friendly Solution Name

If you are one of those annoying people who like to have 2 or 3 or 9 instances of Visual Studio open at once while working on multiple branches of the same code base (and only an idiot would want to do this, obviously), it helps if you can get Visual Studio to include the branch name in the title, otherwise, you end up having to open a file and hover over it to help remember which is which.

If you download VSCommands Lite for use in VS 2010, you can set what are called friendly names, but unfortunately, the links to the release notes in Stack Overflow are all 404s now.  Here’s the syntax:

Friendly Name: {solutionName} - {branchName}

Friendly Name: Solution Path Regex:  .*\\(?<branchName>.*)\\(?<solutionName>.*(?:.sln))
