Microsoft finally lets you customize console colors.

This has taken way longer than it should have, but Microsoft finally released a tool to make it easy to change console color schemes (similar to what has been in many Linux desktop managers for years).

By default, the console window uses an awful default color scheme (dark blue text on a black background is really hard to see). I recommend the OneHalfDark scheme.

Download ColorTool from Microsoft.

Here are some screenshots of how it looks on my system.
