Hello

To use ubuntu terminal in my laptop, I use application PuTTY.

Unlike ubuntu terminal, the PuTTY always shows only white text regardless of the file format.

But on the screens of other users show different text color of the line typing the command and by the file type like ubuntu.

How can I useuse putty like other users?

After opening the PuTTY, there is a Colours option in Windows Tab. You can change there accordingly. Change those settings and enter the IP and all, save those settings so you dont have to do this again. Hope this helps.

In colours option which option will I choose?

I try to change options below the text 'Select a colour to adjust' but this options change whole text color, not specific file type.

Do you know how to change the text color specifically
