I want to change the color scheme of the command prompt in Windows, ideally a default of
0a (green color on black background).
How can I change this?

Open a Command Prompt, click the icon (top-left), select Properties.
Choose Colors, adjust to taste. It will ask you if you want to save the colour for future settings - choose yes.
Using the Command Prompt type regedit to open the Windows Registry, then set the following entry to the color combination you prefer (DefaultColor):
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Command Processor/ Set DefaultColor to 0a
Go to a command prompt and type
help color then press ENTER.
You can also select the command prompt icon and change its properties.
@reg add "hkcu\software\microsoft\command processor" /v defaultcolor /t reg_dword /d 0xa /f
put it inside a .bat file and execute it, or type straight in command prompt it will make default shell (cmd.exe) color green for current user to roll back, change 0xa back to 0
