Notepad - change background colors

Issue

Is it possible to change the background color of Notepad?

Solution

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.
