Console window title: please replace "Administrator: " with something shorter or even remove it

Command prompts opened as administrator are indistinguishable in the task bar because of the long prefix "Administrator: " added to its title.
The `title` command changes only the part of the title that goes after this prefix. Please do something about it: shorten it to "Admin:", or even just "A", or a bomb emoji, or change the icon in the task bar and remove the prefix altogether, or add a setting for the user to choose, etc.

People go as far as modifying cmd.exe in a hex editor to get rid of this prefix:
