    How to: How to Change the Console Banner Color/Wording and Shortcut Bar


    Step by Step:

    To do this, you will need to edit the console.exe.config and or the consolex64.exe.config file, and add the following keys right under <!-- Custom Action Handlers --> :

     

    <add key="ProductEntity" value="!!!!! DEV !!!!!"/>        (This can say anything you want, ie. 'Warning Production - DO NOT CHANGE', or 'TEST')
    <add key="OverrideMenuBarBackColorName" value="Red" />        (You can change 'Red' to whatever color you like...)

    These changes will happen once you restart the console.

     

    You can also change the Shortcut bar on the left to match the banner for that added pop.

    - Open the Console - Settings - System Settings

    - Expand the Shortcut Bar Colors

    - Select the drop-down to the right of 'Back Color'

    - Select the color you want

    - Save (The changes will happen immediately when you save)

     

    Please ensure you have a backup of the config file before making any changes.
