to the console!  ie: DOS command window
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

Hmmm, according to the source blog, you must do a clean-install of the new W10 build (16257) to get the new color scheme. Upgrading to the new build will "NOT" (their uppercase, bold, italics emphasis) get you the new Console scheme because they don't want to overwrite existing color settings. I think upgrading to a new scheme to support modern display technologies is a great, long overdue idea. I just think it is too bad users are not given the option to switch back and forth without having to do a clean install of the OS. :(

Microsoft did say they will release a tool to upgrade the command shell without having to do a clean installation -- at a later date.

'freedom...is actually the reason that men live together in political organisations at all. Without it, political life as such would be meaningless. The raison d'Être of politics is freedom, and its field of experience is action'.
