Notepad - change background colors

September 2017


Is it possible to change the background color of Notepad?


No it can't be changed.

Try using an alternative to Notepad:
  • Download Notepad ++
  • Install it --> Open the Notepad++ --> Click on "Settings" --> Select "Style
  • Configuration --> Check the check boxes "Enable global foreground color" &
  • "Enable global foreground color" --> Select your Foreground & Background color
  • Save & Close.
