Console.ForegroundColor Visual Studio in Menu->View->Output tab

When I am writing console application I can change console background or foreground color and make some data more conspicuous.
But when I am writeing non-console application and I use Console.WriteLine it display data in View->Output tab as BLACK text only.
Sometimes I have to copy a lot of data from Output and use it in elsewhere like Excel.
I think it would be a little better when I will be able to use colors in Output tab. I will easily see if there is any Debug exceptions in other color between my data.

        In Coded UI test I use Console.Writeline method in writing the output to the standard output by using a try catch, If I can display the error messages in color it will be easy to identify.

        I typically use Debug.Print in WinForms apps.. so adding a .ForgroundColor property to the Debug class would be a great compliment / requirement.
