Visual Studio interactive window unreadable highlighted error

Recently, Visual Studio started highlighting errors in the interactive window, which makes them unreadable:

Error highlighted

How can I remove or change the highlight color? I looked around SO but can’t find any of the settings mentioned (e.g. this).

I am using the standard VS dark theme. Other dark themes didn’t solve the issue



Following rioV8’s instructions, I added the following to my settings.json:

"workbench.colorCustomizations": {
    "terminal.ansiYellow": "#1e1e1e"

Replaces the awful yellow with the same background color as the interactive window in the default dark mode. Works for VSCode v1.63.2.
