Windows 10: Green text in command prompt. How did I get here?

    Green text in command prompt. How did I get here?


    I recently set up windows 10 on a Dell XPS13 laptop. It was the home version from what I remember. It had a digital license.

    I noticed that the command prompt text is green.

    I know you can set this to be this way, but I did not make any changes. Does anyone know what would have caused this to be green right from the start? Very strange and I'd like to know why.

    Hello Roveer,

    You may have mistakenly changed the colors in the command prompt somehow.

    I would know if I followed the steps to change those colors. It's pretty specific. It's not like hitting Fn-F2 or anything. Not my first windows rodeo

    I'm not sure how it may have been changed for you, but just pointing out how to change it back.
