SYNTAX Sets the default console foreground and background colors.
attr Specifies color attribute of console output
Color attributes are specified by TWO hex digits -- the first corresponds to the background; the second the foreground. Each digit can be any of the below values.
0 = Black 8 = Gray 1 = Blue 9 = Light Blue 2 = Green A = Light Green 3 = Aqua B = Light Aqua 4 = Red C = Light Red 5 = Purple D = Light Purple 6 = Yellow E = Light Yellow 7 = White F = Bright White If no argument is given, this command restores the color to what it was when CMD.EXE started. This value either comes from the current console window, the /T command line switch or from the Default Color registry value. The COLOR command sets ERROR LEVEL to 1 if an attempt is made to execute the COLOR command with a foreground and background color that are the same. EXAMPLE
Color 2A = Creates a green background with light bright green text, similar to many of the FTP, telnet, and old BBS console screens.
Valid for a session only.
