    "ALL" I want to do...

    is change the text and background colors of Powershell errors. No, it isn't. Or should not be critical, but it bugs me. Since I know Nada about PowerShell I don't even know what I am looking for as yet.

    Isn't there so (relatively) easy way to control screen colors -- specifically of the error messages in PowerShell?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    With PowerShell open click on the PowerShell icon in the PoweShell window and select Defaults or Properties. Look at the fonts and colors tab.

    I get/got the prompt customization, Joe, but I didn't /don't see where customizing the error messages is spelled out.
