    Is there any way to change the background color from black to any thing else, and hopefully the foreground colot 2? The Dos window could also be called the console window too! :rolleyes:

    Yes! Open the DOS window, right-click the top left and select properties and then colors.

    Note that changing the colors will sometimes be overridden by the DOS application you run, so you'll get something fairly ugly many times. :)
