Renaming tmux window

When you create a new window prefix + c in tmux, it will be named after default shell you are using. When you run a specific script or program, the name will change to the program that’s being executed but once the process is completed, it will go back to default shell name. To keep track of each window session, you should make a habit of renaming the window.

The command line instruction for renaming window is

tmux rename-window new_name

and the shortcut for renaming window is

prefix + , new_name
