if i understand you correctly you don't want the coloring of the code?
As far as i know this can't be turned off in one step. You have to go to Settings->Editor->Syntax Highlighting and turn all colors to black

No it is that the color isnt present everything is just black i want the color to be there but for some reason it gives me no colour and the syntax highlighting option is set to default

What file-ending ?
If none it's treated as plain text and has no highlighting at all.

The file ending is saved as the default whenever you write c it saves as .cbp

???
.cbp is the codeblocks project file, there are your build and project options saved.
The. C file is your source file. If you simply open a new file with the toolbar shortcut you have to save it first as a. C file. Without saving it you won't get any colors...

.cbp are the project settings file.  The .cpp is the C++ source file.  Once you have saved your source file with the correct extension, you will then see the correct syntax highlighting colors.
