How can I change the name of the "Application Templates" tab to some shorter name, such as "Apps"?

It can be done be will require a little work on your part. First, the long way for future deployments:
Copy all your WSP files to some location: (C:\Temp for example). Open a command prompt and run the following batch command to extract all the files:Code Snippetfor %i in (*.wsp) do @extrac32 /E "%i" /L "SolutionFiles\%i"
Find all your WEBTEMP* files and open them up in notepad. Find anything that has:
and rename as appropriate. (DisplayCategory="Apps").
Download the Cabinet SDK from http://download.microsoft.com/download/platformsdk/cab/2.0/w98nt42kmexp/en-us/cabsdk.exe and extract the files to C:\Temp\CABSDK.
Delete the original WSP files in your temporary directory and run the following to repackage them as WSP files.Code Snippet
for /D %i in (*.wsp) do @cd "SolutionFiles\%i" & "C:\Temp\CABSDK\BIN\CABSRC.EXE" -p -r n "..\..\%i" *.* & cd "..\.."
Now the short way, you will need to do for already deployed solutions:
Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12. Within the 12-hive, you will need to find the WEBTEMP files. It is in one of these following locations beyond 12 (I just can't remember right now). XML; XML\1033; TEMPLATE\XML; TEMPLATE\XML\1033; TEMPLATE\1033\XML. Update the DisplayCategory attribute for each WEBTEMP*.XML file as listed above. You must perform this on each machine you have already deployed, and you must perform an iisreset to see the changes.
