console window display colored text, helpful while debugging and/or writing console apps

The console window should be able to display text in colors as coded in C++. VS Code is able to display colored text in the integrated terminal (same function as console in VS Community/Pro/Enterprise).

C++ example that works to change text color elsewhere (Linux, VS Code, etc), but not in VS C/P/E's console window:
if (variable == 1)
cout << "\E[22;32m" << green text << "\E[0m"; //revert to black text
else if (variable == 2)
cout << "\E[22;34m" << blue text << "\E[0m";
