Take a look at WinSetTitle() in the help file.

Or look at _IEPropertySet ($oIE, "title", "your title")

Hum... I guess both those ways would work, but what if I wanted to open a new IE window with _IECreate() and make my own title without knowing what the original title would be.

Either would still work - note that IE will update the window title based on each new page displayed.

but is there a way to make a variable by capturing the current title in order to replace it?

taking your example:

_IEPropertySet ($oIE, "title", "your title")

replacing it for a variable

_IEPropertySet ($oIE, $title, "your title")

and now how to find $title ?

or $title = _IEPropertyGet($oIE, "title")

Note that the document title you manipulate with the IE functions is a little different than the Win32 window title.
