    I went to try and do some Win32 crap and found out im not ready

    Back to Dos programming

    Now how do you change the background color of the screen?
    Ive tried textbackground() but that doesnt affect thewhole screen...
    What is C++?

    In plenty of the threads there are people who complain about not having conio.h so they cant use textcolor() and then someone comes up and tells them about something else. I found it when i was looking for it.

    to change all the text you use system("color /*color nr code*/");
    so i guess its something like system("background /*nr*/);

    EDIT:: sorry for missing the entire screen part
