SAP Tips: How to show the system name in your logon pad GUI sessions

How to show the system name in your logon pad GUI sessions

You are more than likely going to be using more than one SAP system, or at least you will be logged on to different versions (e.g. development system, test system, live system etc).

The answer is simple! Open up your SAP GUI options as below:

Then go to “Visualization 2” under “Interaction Design”. There is a setting called “Show system name in taskbar button”.

Without this checked, your SAP logon pad and session will look like this:




If you check that checkbox in your settings, it looks like this, with the system name prefixed (I have greyed this out for the purposes of privacy!):




This makes it easier to identify which SAP session you need to open.
