    Yes, there is:
    1. Go to Tools->Options
    2. Select the tab all the way on the far right, Format.
    3. In the Category listbox, select All Windows.
    4. In the Colors listbox, scroll down a little and select String.
    5. Change the Foreground color to Red.
    6. Hit OK to save and exit.

    You can also change fonts and color for other things while there. If you only want the color to be red in source code, select Source Windows as the Category.
