Use this string to change the foreground (text) to green: prompt $e[32m
Use this to change it back to white (Resets all attributes): prompt $e[0m$p$g (Add "$P$G" after this if you want the regular prompt back)
This changes text to green, background to magenta, and makes the text bright (Also adds the current path and a greater than symbol with $p and $g): prompt $e[32m$e45m$e[5m$p$g
Note, the "m" after the "$e[0" in any escape sequence MUST be lower-case. All other characters are not case sensitive. Here is a list of all the other colors:
Use "3x" for text and "4x" for backgrounds.
0 = black 1 = red 2 = green 3 = yellow 4 = blue 5 = magenta 6 = cyan 7 = white
Also, use "5" by itself for blinking, "1" will make the foreground color bright, and "0" by itself resets to the default of white text and a black background.
Now, the prompt command is not the only way to do this. Simply typing a plain text file that contains the escape sequence will work. However, instead of using "$e" for the escape charactor, you will use the actuall charactor for the escape key. You can't just press "ESC" though. EDIT makes this easy. Simply press "CTRL+P" and then hit the escape key, it will insert an escape character for you into your document. Then carry on with the rest of your escape sequence. You can use "ECHO" followed by an escape sequence in batch files also. Here is a link to a batch file that will let you change screen colors a little easier. "color.zip"
