Assumed this will use in script for changing layout and specifying window name.
ex.
Text = text you're about to assign window name to current window.
ex. "Customer"

AssignWindowName ( "Customer" )
-> "Customer - 2" (When window exists which name has "Customer")
-> "Customer - 3" (When window exists which name has "Customer" and "Customer - 2")
-> "Customer - 3" (When window exists which name has "Customer - 2" and does not exists window "Customer")
-> "Customer - 2" (When window exists which name has "Customer" and "Customer - 2" and current window name is "Customer - 2")
