Cannot get workspace to type in color

Hello, I am a new user and the IDE workspace just randomly stopped typing in color. Can someone tell me how to get the color back? I feel really stupid but I would really appreciate the help.
Thank you

The IDEs can figure out automatically which language you are using based on the file extension. It is possible that you are either typing in plain TXT or your IDE have not loaded fully.

If you have saved the file already, that will have turned on syntax highlighting. If all the text after some point is, say, red, then chances are there is a syntax error at or near where the color change does not happen.

Thank you for your replies. File type was not specified. Stupid me. Thanks again to all.
