Yes you can .
Start==> Control Panel==>Appearances and Personalization
==>under Personalization open " Change window glass colors"

==>open classic view a pop up will appear then
==>open "Advance Appearance setting"
==> from "Item" menu choose "Windows"
==> choose or custom whatever color you like, then "apply" and "Ok".

this will change the page background on any windows program/application.
***DON'T PRINT WITH THIS FUNCTION ENABLE it will use up your ink***

Travid is right, you could have changed the color settings of your Command Prompt but in Notepad, there are no such features available.

Thanks.
