no that is not what i mean...

name of the session or tab name... default is Shell and when u create andoter session (in same window) name of session / tab is Shell No. 2 and so on....
i want to be default name (user@hostname) becouse i have a lot of tabs opend in one window (10 or more) and at the end i spend a lot of time searching right session tab...

ahhhh, click on View....then Rename session program/app X
second one = app Y
the third 3 app Z

but if you have 10 or more open your taskbar shows only one link then you have to click it to see what each session is now called.....then find the app the want to go to that session.

ps I do not think it wise to rename session to include your username@stuff....keep it simple as above
