    How to change program name?


    So I know how to rename a file or shortcut, of course.

    But I want to change a program name so it appears how it I want it whenever its name comes up.

    For example, for Media Player Classic, when I choose "open with", it should say Media Player Classic, instead of MPC-HC x64, like it says now.

    I actually changed the info in the .exe file with Resource Hacker. I changed file description from MPC-HC x64 to Media Player Classic, but that didn't work.

    Not sure what else to do.

    Don't ask me why, I'm just weird, lol.

    :)
