In the Properties window, click on Colors.
Click the button that shows a pencil drawing a line.
Select any colour other than "None".

When you change something in Properties with a mouse click, the change
will generally happen right away. When you change something by typing in
a field, the change will generally happen when focus leaves the field
(e.g. hit the Tab key, or click somewhere else). There is no "DO IT"
button. If something you change in Properties has no visible effect,
it's generally worth checking whether the thing you are changing is
actually meant to be visible (e.g. color == None).
