Current window title is
"[Admin] Multi Commander v1.1.2 (build 829) 64bit Edition - FREE EDITION"

If a user has multiple instances of MC running, then when mousing over the icons in the task bar, the same window title shown above is displayed for each instance.  This makes it harder for the user to find the desired instance.

Add a -T "string" or -Title "string" parameter to the command line (and a [Title] section to the .ini file?) to let the user re-title the MC window.  Then when mousing over the task bar icons, useful names will pop up, such as: "CR Maintenance" or "PC_Cards" or "Release 03.18".

Tried latest build with the -T= parameter.

Seems to work good!

I would have preferred a complete replacement of the existing title with the -T title, but what you have now is better than what it was before.

Thanks for the enhancement!
