The ability for SecureCRT to natively name tabs with an index isn't currently a feature you can "turn on". There is now a feature request in place, and we'll post to this forum thread if a version of SecureCRT were ever to become available with this functionality as a native feature.

In the mean time, there is a script workaround that can be used to accomplish tab index numeral-naming.

As there might be forum community members who desire this functionality in Python as well as VBScript, examples of both script ideas are provided here. (Python)
RenameTabsUponConnect.vbs.txt (VBscript)
The script can be used in any of the following ways:
  • Set it up as your "Logon Script" (see Logon Actions category of your Session Options -- apply to all your sessions by modifying the Default session),
  • Map a button on SecureCRT's Button Bar to launch this script whenever you would desire to "freshen" the index for all tabs with one quick run, or
  • Launch it manually with the Run menu item found in SecureCRT's main Script pull-down menu
