char c;
cout<<"Press any key to close console window.";
cin>>c;

How can I change the default colors in the console window?
Don't like the colors in the console window (cout)? Here's how to change them:
  1. Right-click at the top of the console window and select "properties." 
  2. Then select the "colors" tab. 
  3. Set the colors the way you like them. 
You're welcome.
