Acrobat 101: right-click on any tool, select Properties from the context-sensitive pop-out menu.

In your case, the highlighter's properties will include its color.

 

Since this basic task is unfamiliar to you, consider taking a class in Acrobat or even some free online tutorials. Adobe has plenty on their website that are quite good for these rudimentary tasks. https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/tutorials.html

Not 100% correct. Right click on the highlighter tool and choose "Show Properties Bar." That floating properties bar allows choosing highlighter color and % opacity. Additionally, the color and opacity of already highlighted text can be changed by LEFT clicking on that text with the selection pointer; that brings up a little properties tool bar.

What an AH commentor.  I have taken the online class and changing the color is NOT evident, right click aside.

Thanks for the superuser snark.  Just don't respond to a HELP board if you look down at a quick answer.

Of course Acrobat NEVER updates is integrated help areas - it leaves it to the COMMUNITY of AHs that take a little time to snark on folks.
