Konsole tab name


hello
I am new to this forum.
Is there a way to make the Konsole tab name = pwd ?
I always open several sessions and find myself waisting so much time figuring the one I am looking for.
Thank you for your help

I believe you are looking for %D (long) or %d (short).


Open konsole
Select Help
Select Konsole Handbook
Select Rename Tab Dialog

Konsole will subsitute these tokens:
  • %n : program name
  • %d : current directory (short)
  • %D : current directory (long)
  • %w : window title set by shell
  • %# : session number
  • %u : user name
