Powershell PSReadLineOption for Backgroundcolor RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    I am using PowerShell 5.1 as it is installed with Windows 10 1809 (54-Bit). 

    I have changed the foregound and backgroud colors using the colors tab in PowerShell properties.

    However I have to adjust the colors for the different entries e.g. commands, parameters and so on, to make them readable with the new background color. This works well with the hints I found in PowerShell documentation. 

    What I can not realise is to change the background color, of an entry. error messages turn up with a black background and I want to change it. I understand the Documentation for Set-PSReadLineOption following: the parameter -color can be used to change the background color. Unfortunately I do not see how. 

    Can anyone help me?
