Good Afternoon,

I have created my own theme in Powershell ISE but when I close the ISE and re-open it the background of the console window keeps changing back to 'Transparent' despite my theme specifying it should be 'Dim Gray'.

This only affects the Console Pane of the ISE, the Script Pane retains the background colour my theme sets.

Has anyone experienced this before please? I am not sure how to resolve it.

(I always run the ISE as Administrator)

I resolved this by creating a system-wide profile.ps1 in:

%windir%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\

and setting the console background colour for the ISE.
