My guides in InDesign are all a light cyan, which I find hard to see. How can I change the color of the guides? I'd like to apply the color to the guides whether they are selected or not.
Go to the Layout menu > Ruler guides.
New guides will have the color you will choose in the dropdown menu. Note that you must select existing guides to change their color.
To add to @jmlevy 's answer, Cntl-Alt-G/Cmd-Opt-G will select all the unlocked guides on a per spread basis.

Hi @Tom Goodell , You can change all of the guides in a document via a script. This would change them all to Lipstick. To use a different UI color, replace LIPSTICK with the color name in all caps, e.g. BLUE, DARK_BLUE, GRID_GREEN:
app.activeDocument.guides.everyItem().guideColor = UIColors.LIPSTICK
look up every possible value for UIColor here:
Or use a custom RGB color for the guides.
Sample code for the reddest red you can get with RGB below ( values go from 0 to 255 )
app.activeDocument.guides.everyItem().guideColor = [ 255 , 0 , 0 ];
