Dos Box w/High-Intensity Set

Is there a way to set the font in a DOS box to high-intensity? The default color seems to be a low-intensity white (more gray than white)?

Add this line to your config.sys:
device=c:\windows\command\ansi.sys

Then write a file with the lines below in it, call it brite.bat or similar and put it in the root directory:

@echo off
prompt $E[1;37;40m$p$g

Open a dos box and right click on the top frame (where it says MS-DOS prompt)
select "properties"
Under Batch file type c:\brite.bat
click apply.
Close and reopen the MS-Dos prompt It will be the default look.
If you just want to test it out after the Ansi.sys is loaded, type the prompt command exactly as above and you will have it for that session. If you don't want it to be the default look, don't add it as the batch file in the properties menu, rather just type: brite.bat when you want it.
