Set default prompt

#1 Post by findstr » 11 Jun 2021 09:19

Hello!

Code: Select all

PROMPT $E[48^;5^;104^;38^;5^;15m$D$G$E[0m$S
How can I make cmd.exe to run this code at startup to set the color prompt automatically every time I launch cmd.exe?
Windows 10
Thanks!

Assuming you have either A) Cmd.exe pinned to the task bar or B) you use a shortcut to open cmd, you can edit the properties of the shortcut and change the target to:

Code: Select all

%windir%\system32\cmd.exe -cmd /k "PROMPT $E[48^;5^;104^;38^;5^;15m$D$G$E[0m$S"
Otherwise, you'll need to create a batch file containing the command and modify a Registry value. See: https://stackoverflow.com/a/17405182/12343998
