Currently session tabs in PulseView are named "Session 1" by default (which will be user-changeable later). Views (no matter how many there are) currently inherit the session name, e.g. "Session 1".

It would be a bit nicer if views were also identifyable e.g. as "View 1", "View 2" etc. However, since they can be dragged out of the main window e.g. onto other monitors giving them a name that also includes the session name would be beneficial.

Example for default view names: "Session 3 - View 1" or "Session 3: View 1".

Of course view names (like session names) should be user-settable as well, this issue is just about the default names (if the user doesn't specify one).

Quick hack demo patch (not properly working) attached. This is _not_ meant to be merged as such!
