    Hi there,

    It would be immensely helpful if when we have multiple Unity projects open that the application icon had the project name instead of a generic label of 'Unity'. It's actually kind of infurating when you're working on mulitple projects and is impossible to know which project you're tabbing to or opening when you click on it in the dock.

    I'm using macOs Big Sur and not sure if the behaviour is the same in Windows or not, but it would be great if this is improved.

    I have to currently tab through and open each project one at a time to find the one I want and this can lead to issues in some cases where I don't want to tab back to a particular project yet which might trigger an import of half baked assets I'm editing externally. But it's just impossible to avoid or target the project I want at the moment.

    Example of what I mean:

    Hopefully this can be improved, thanks.

    Infuriating... here we are in 2021 and this is still the case. Many have railed about it before.

    ALSO: if I already have a project open in the hub it tells me "That project is already open!"

    Wouldn't it be AMAZINGLY USEFUL if Unity actually focused and opened that instance of itself? It does not.

    Another year gone by and this is still causing me so much confusion. All day, every day, jumping between multiple projects is an absolutely maddening process of trying to find the project... it's like - tab, tab, nope, tab, nope, tab, tab, tab, nope, tab, tab ohh finally found the one I need.

    Has anyone at Unity ever tried to work on more than two projects at a time? I'm sure if someone had they'd address this.
