I used to set the Windows console font from the default to Consolas. I just did a clean install of Windows 7 Pro x64 on my laptop very recently, and there are very few application programs on it. I'd like to do the same and change the console font to Consolas.
I was going to follow what I did before (which I found on the Internet) by adding a registry entry to the location
with value name "00" and value data "Consolas". But I went to that registry location only to find out the registry (with name and data exactly as above) was already there. Also, there was another entry for Lucida Console with value name "0" and value data "Lucida Console"
So I simply opened up cmd.exe and checked the Properties/Font section, neither of the above two fonts showed up as a font option. More strangely, even if I change the font size there, after I restart cmd.exe, the font size goes back to the default.
Is there any other place where I need to add a registry entry or modify any settings? Does anyone know how to fix this?
Thanks very much for any help.
