  • Hi LeonMoore,

    Which version of Visual Studio do you use? In Visual Studio, if you want to change the color for some key words, please open the Tools menu -> Options -> Environment -> Fonts and Colors. Then you can choose the key words type and set its foreground and background. For the 'cout' and 'cin', please choose the "C++ Variables" in the Display items list and set the foreground as you expected.
