    Arrow How to change background and foreground colour of the text in Command Prompt



    Have you ever wished to change the black and white look of Command prompt (cmd)?

    Ya its possible, we can change the black and white Colour to our own choice. There are 2 alternative method of changing the Command Prompt Colour.

    1.) By Registry Editor
    2.) By TuneUp Utilities

    Method 1.) By Registry Editor:

    a.) Open the Registery Editor (Start > Run > Regedit) and navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor.

    b.) Locate to DWORD value “DefaultColour“.

    In the right pane, modify the “DefaultColour” value, putting in a hexadecimal number say “E4″. The first digit of this value determines the background colour, and the second digit determines the foreground colour of the text.



    Preview:



    In this case, ‘E’ corresponds to Light yellow colour, and ‘4′ corresponds to Red The result in command prompt window with red text on yellow background. Similarly you can set your own choice according to this table:



    Method 2.) By TuneUp Utilities:

    1.) Open TuneUp Utilities > Customize Windows > TuneUp System Control > Navigate to, Administration > System > Command Prompt > Advance.



    2.) Choose any colour of your choice & Press Apply.



    3.) Restart your PC to see Effects.

    That’s It.

    regeditor ???

    to change color in CMD (cmd.exe): start CMD, right-click on the window-bar → properties → "COLOR"....

    if you select "Layout" then you can also change the size and position of the window....

    Hi !

    Welcome to the forum !
    Im confused, exactly what do you mean ?
    Also, its better to create a new thread if you have a problem, especially since its not related to the subject of this thread.
    That makes it easier to keep this thread on the subject....
    Please create a new thread, and ill try to help you.
