Generally on our Wordpress blogs,there will be a label Wordpress displayed on title bar. Does any body have idea how to hide or remove it?

My website is powered by wordpress multisite installation and like many people I wanted it as self branded even though I keep link back to at footer .

Is it inappropriate to do this ?

I personaly don't think you should really do this, and I would leave it there if I were you - it is in fact a way to support WordPress, and don't forget you got it for free. ;)

but, if you really want to do it, go to /wp-admin/admin-header.php

and remove — WordPress from this line:

<title><?php echo $title; ?> &lsaquo; <?php bloginfo('name') ?>  &#8212; WordPress</title>

You're so ashamed to be using WordPress? :-)

There's a filter in WP 3.1:

$admin_title = apply_filters( 'admin_title', $admin_title, $title );

I am using wordpress as Multisite installation .So when a user log into Dashboard as shown in the above image . I want to appear the title as Profile< mysite < Dash board Administration. And it is Multisite installation ,many people wanted it as self branded at title ,we give link back to wordpress as "Powered by wordpress" at footer. I don't know what is wrong in my question –  user391 Dec 11 '10 at 5:21
Oh nothing's wrong with the question. It was just a friendly tease. :-) Editing my answer with the solution. –  Denis de Bernardy Dec 11 '10 at 11:12

Best I can tell, by default Wordpress displays the Blog Title (Settings->General). Have you changed that to something besides the default?

It appears for every blog by default . –  user391 Dec 11 '10 at 5:34

No, your looking at the meta title tag, the easiest solution to change this is with an SEO plugin that can alter the meta title tags dynamically or manually. All of the top SEO plugins have this functionality.

Once I customized it from some core files or theme files .Now I forgot that .Do you have idea how to do it? –  user391 Dec 11 '10 at 6:52

If Settings->General didn't work better login into database (through control panel or search for wp-optionsand change blogname.
