Right click over the tab, select Rename session, or double click the
For the longest time I treated konsole as just another xterm clone. I
turned off all the toolbars and tabs to minimize desktop real estate.
I routinely had a number of separate, overlapping konsoles cluttering
up my desktop. Then I "discovered" what the extra features like tabs
and bookmarks were good for.
If you use bookmarks in konsole you can set the name that is displayed.
At work I have bookmarks for most of my servers as well as a number of
other boxen I deal with regularly. I typically have one konsole
running with several sessions open in different tabs. Shift-arrow
toggles between them without leaving the keyboard. Holding down shift
and toggling left and right arrows is a quick way to visually see diffs
between two similar files.
