    Did you look in your code editors settings?

    Really... it's going to be entirely specific to the editor you use.

    so what you mean is that i should get a copy of the compiler which is black?
    isn't there any way to change mine from blue to black?
    i tried the setting but it only allows me to change my output color when i use CLRT+F9.

    What compiler/ide are you using?

    The program you edit your code is in is (almost certainly) not your compiler. Whatever program you edit your code in has a way to change the colors (even DOS edit can do that). You should probably look at the menu bars along the top.

    Look under Options tab, and then Preferences.

    I use an old version of TC (1.01), and it has no option for that, but later versions might have something.

    Hard to imagine that Black would be a popular option for the output window default background color, though.

    Your program can change the output window background color, but that's not changing the default background color, of course.

    You should REALLY ask Salem this question.

    I got it solved already... thx for all the helps...
    Another question guys... i made a program in c++ and mistacally i deleted the cpp file of that...
    anyway i have the BAK file of that and the application (exe) file also... now the question is is there such a way to get the codes back?
    some said if u just rename the BAK format to cpp it will do, but whenever i tried it it output an error as follows: Invalid configuration file: TCCONFIG.TC. PRESS ESC..
    also sometimes this error: Lines too long... -CR inserted....
    any help would bt much appreciated guys.. thx
