Blue Background TC9

I'm new to TC9 but I've always had (old DOS years) white text on a blue background.

This worked great in TC8 but in TC9 all the colors change does is change where there is text written but the background still stays black in the prompt (command) window.

Is this just the way it is or what am I missing?

Thanks,
Jim

If you're running tcc.exe "stand-alone" then,
right-click on the TCC icon and select "Properties" from the menu that
(eventually) appears. Click on the "Colors" tab and make your
selections. You might also do the same thing in the "Defaults" option
after right-clicking on the icon again. When closing make this the
"default" for the shortcut.

I had a similar issue with TCC and TCMD 9. I just added a CLS to the 4start and tcstart. Before that I only got the blue backgrounds where I typed or after scrolling the screen. Now it starts up that way.

Here's what I'm doing (v9.02.154) at the command prompt

color white on blue
cls (background is blue like I'd expect)
dir (files are listed & text colors are correct but background is black)

Thanks,
Jim
