Setting up GVim for Windows

Create a file named _gvimrc in the “C:\Program Files\Vim\” folder (or wherever you install it into) with the following contents :-

syntax enable ” Enables colour syntax highlighting
set nocp ” Activates the ‘i’ key to enter insert mode ?
set bs=2 ” Enables backward deletion using backspace
colorscheme desert “Enables a colour scheme of your choice ; in my case its ‘desert’.

Hope it helped.
