Something blue

Now you can change the color of the interactive PowerShell Console pane in PowerGUI Script Editor with this add-on posted by Kirk.

PowerShell Console pane has always been my favorite feature of the script editor. It is extremely handy to be able to easily go from regular debugging to interactive PowerShell and back – and the fact that they are sharing the same PowerShell runspace so you can inspect your variables and environment and even change them right inside a debugging session is making debugging so much easier.

The only drawback the PowerShell Console had was its color. 🙂 Or to be precise inability to change it. Black on white is very readable and inline with Windows guidelines but if you are a hardcore PowerShell geek – chances are you might want it blue. Now all you need to do is use this add-on:

The add-on is actually just a PowerShell script module so you can edit it to change to whatever other fancy color scheme you might want your PowerShell to be. 😉

Download and install the Blue Console add-on and let us know what you think!
