6 = Yellow
7 = White
8 = Gray
9 = Light Blue
A = Light Green
B = Light Aqua
C = Light Red
D = Light Purple
E = Light Yellow
F = Bright White

To set a specific color combination, use the “color” command followed by the corresponding color code. For instance, to have a blue background with white text, enter “color 97.” The first digit ‘9’ represents light blue, and the second digit ‘7’ represents white.

If you prefer using only one color for the text, you can omit the second digit. For example, “color 9” will change the text to light blue.
