I am running Windows 10 and want to set up cmd.exe prompt such that it looks the same as my bash prompt on the same machine. I have set up a startup script to set the PROMPT variable when loading cmd.exe, which detects whether the shell is running with root privileges and set up the colour accordingly:
However, as shown from the screenshot, I can't set up the prompt in cmd.exe (the upper windows) such that the colour resets to default after finishing the command, as shown in bash (the lower windows). If I run bash from cmd, the colour also can't reset.
Then I run ls with colours in both shells, if I run it in cmd, or bash within cmd, the colour cannot be reset by the normal file. However, if I run it in bash only, the colour can be reset.
How can I set up my startup script such that the colour behaviour of cmd.exe is made identical to my bash shell?
