    [TRY IT]Changing the DOS background colour

    The value DefaultColor controls the foreground and background colors used in command prompt windows. It has a default value of 0, for standard white text on a black background.

    CHANGING DOS BACKGROUND

    Open your registry (press win+r and type regedit, hit enter)

    goto

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor]

    u'll find "DefaultColor"


     


    You can replace it's value with a two-digit hexadecimal number, in which the first digit selects a background color and the second a foreground color. The hexadecimal codes are:

    Hexadecimal value Color
    0 Black
    1 Blue
    2 Green
    3 Aqua
    4 Red
    5 Purple
    6 Yellow
    7 White
    8 Gray
    9 Light Blue
    A Light Green
    B Light Aqua
    C Light Red
    D Light Purple
    E Light Yellow
    F Bright White

    A value of F0, for example, would give black text on a white background, and 1E would yield yellow text on a blue background.
    The change should take effect the next time you open a console window.



    NOTE : VERY SAFE EVENTHOUGH IT DEALS WITH REGISTRY. EVEN BEGINNER LEVEL USER CAN ALSO TRY THIS. HARMLESSTRICK.
