Matrix Command Prompt (WITH COLOR!!)

Introduction: Matrix Command Prompt (WITH COLOR!!)

Many of you all know the cool trick with command prompt that makes it look like matrix. You probably didn't know you can change the colors.

In the code it says "color 0a".
I learned this from minecraft... &a = green and &0 = black. So I changed "a" to "b" and it changed the numbers blue. I also changed "0" to "f" and it made the background white.

In the instructions I will leave the color codes for the background and numbers along with the matrix code

echo %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random% %random%
goto top

Make sure on notepads "%random%" is on one line and not two
