Color Codes SecureCRT

If you are sick and tired of the old green/black or black/white themes (white/dark blue in my case) like I was, you starting looking alternatives…

I have found a page that uses a little .ini file to customize Cisco words with colours (also does a great job on Juniper)!

Unfortunately, I cannot find it again to post the direct link, but all the credits goes to this unknown blogger.

The outcome will be this:




  • Download “Cisco Words.ini” File here
  • Search for the installation folder of SecureCRT, and copy the file into folder Config\Keywords.


Note: You can check on Global Options -> Configurations Paths

  •  Go to Options -> Global Options..


  • Select Default Session -> Edit Default Session…


  • Terminal -> Appearance -> Highlight keywords -> Name and Select “Cisco Words”


After this, you will be ready to see the terminal with a new pair of eyes!
