Say I have a powershell line that looks like this:

PS C:\Dev\Apps>

Is it possible to modify that so that it is highlighted in, say, yellow? I'd like to be able to make all of the command lines "pop" a bit more. In a big wall of text it's really hard to scan and see the important parts (i.e. the commands you ran). I've browsed a few articles about Powershell and don't see any way to do this.

You could use something like:

function prompt
    Write-Host ("PS " + $(get-location) +">") -nonewline -backgroundcolor yellow -foregroundcolor black
    return " "

And see help about_prompts and help about_profiles for more information. – Dennis Williamson Dec 22 '10 at 20:29
