“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?
