    Dude, there’s a better way for this.. Go to Properties -> Colors -> Screen Text Radiobutton (The default will be screen Backgorund radiobutton)..

    Why is this better?? The method suggested by you is a one time fix.. When I restart CMD, the font will be in darkgrey again, which is not the case with the above mentioned method…
