In Git, color.status.changed, color.status.untracked and color.branch.remote, default to red on normal (whatever your console background color is). This can be difficult to read. You can change them using:
git config "foreground-color background-color attribute"
git config --global color.status.changed "yellow normal bold" git config --global color.status.untracked "yellow normal bold" git config --global color.branch.remote "yellow normal bold"
Note that “yellow normal dim” will show up as white in PowerShell, so if you want to use yellow, you must also specify bold.
Git-Posh uses red as the default for GitPromptSettings.WorkingForegroundColor and GitPromptSettings.UntrackedForegroundColor. These are difficult to read as well. They can be changed by editing your PowerShell profile:
- From a PowerShell window, type: notepad $profile to edit your profile.
- Add the following lines somewhere after the #### end POSH-GIT config line near the end.
$global:GitPromptSettings.WorkingForegroundColor = [ConsoleColor]::Yellow $global:GitPromptSettings.UntrackedForegroundColor = [ConsoleColor]::Yellow
You'll need to restart PowerShell to see the change.
