Change Dos Prompt Color...?

Are you bored by seeing the black background in command prompt window. So, don't worry here the solution for your answer. You can change the color of your cmd window.


1. Type these lines in notepad and save as cmdcolor.reg and run it.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor]

2. This will make the background Light Green. But if you want to change it to different color the do the following:

If you want background Blue, then instead of writing "DefaultColor"=dword:0000002e, change the value of  0000002e to 00000019. Here 1 = the background color and 9 = the text color. Similarly use contrasting colors and carry. Down are the color codes that will help you in changing.

0 = Black
8 = Gray

1 = Blue
9 = Light Blue

2 = Green
A = Light Green

3 = Aqua
B = Light Aqua

4 = Red
C = Light Red

5 = Purple
D = Light Purple

6 = Yellow
E = Light Yellow
