    Code:
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        HANDLE h = GetStdHandle(STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE);
    
        SetConsoleTextAttribute(h, BACKGROUND_RED);
        printf("Hello\n");
    
        return 0;
    }
    Clear the screen to make the whole thing have a red background.
