Choosing Different Colors in the Terminal

Choosing different colors for text and background in the terminal window

Launch HyperTerminal Private Edition 6.X then open the connection you want to modify. Access its Properties. Select the Settings tab, then click the Colors button. Make your color selection for text and for background color. You can test a variety of combinations and see them in the Text preview box. Click OK to save your settings.

Note – If your color selections change immediately after connecting to your remote host, then the host application is sending emulator sequences that control color display. These host sequences will override your settings.
