Command Prompt Control Panel

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011 by | Filed Under: Desktop Enhancement

“But Andrew, you already did a tip on colorful command prompts last year!” Yeah, I know – but this is one heck of an upgrade for Windows 7 users. Follow along:

Click Start, type Command into the search box and click the icon that appears in the results. The Command Prompt window should open. Now, right-click on the title bar and select Properties.

In the resulting window, you’ll see options for things like cursor size, font and even window size. You can even make your own custom color scheme.

That’s quite an upgrade, wouldn’t you say?

    I got the same thing in WIN XP by going to Start, Run, type cmd, right click on title bar and left click on properties.
    It gave me an identical display to yours.

    An addem to the last e-mail. I did not know about right clicking on title bar. For that I thank you. I now have total control of size, color, position,font style and size.

    Nice – but how do you make it stick? So the color change is permanent?
