Hello,
  • Download the 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.


Good Luck.

cannot be change color in notepad. Not the same in command promt
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***

enjoy.

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

Thanks.

Hiya,

Are you reffering to changing the page or the skin color. Please be more specific about the specific task that you wish to complete.

Thanks in advance.
