Updated Windows Console colors are coming to Windows 10

Microsoft will soon roll out newly updated colors for Windows Console (Command Prompt). Windows 10 build 16257 will include these new colors that will available later today. Windows Console’s legacy blue is getting a subtle change to make it more legible on modern high-contrast displays, alongside color changes to the entire scheme.

The new CMD colors will only appear for insiders if they clean install build 16257, and if you upgrade you’ll keep the legacy colors to ensure any custom color settings are not replaced.

In addition, Microsoft is also planning to release a tool that will allow Windows 10 testers to apply the new color scheme and a selection of alternatives.

It’s a minor change, however, It’s a good to see that Microsoft is paying attention to the small things in Windows 10.
