Console2: Change Text Color

📅 2011-Aug-03 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ colors, console2 ⬩ 📚 Archive


Console2 is a Windows utility that can be used to host the Windows command shell (cmd.exe), PowerShell, Cygwin shells or any other shell. By default, it displays a black background and the text is displayed in a dull gray color.


The Settings dialog of Console2 does not really indicate where this text color comes from or how to change it. To change the default text color to pure white or any other color, open EditSettings dialog. In the Console Colors Map section, locate the gray color square (marked in the screenshot above) and change it to any color you want. The console text will be displayed in your chosen color.

Tried with: Console2 2.00.147
