Windows 7: Can't change cmd.exe settings to default

Can't change cmd.exe settings to default

Hello, I'm new on SevenForums and I need to help.

I was testing my Small Basic app, but when I launched it, the TextWindow font size was only 46 pixels.
So I launched the Command Prompt via Run, and the size was also 46.

In Properties, there were only 4 tabs and 9 sizes of Terminal font. The default one, 812, wasn't in the options.
I can show you screenshot of Properties window. (I'm using WindowsBlinds 8 with Mac skin, where active tab texture is same with inactive tab.)


How can I restore font size to 812?

It would be a big help for me if you post value of this:

You could try sfc /scannow and that would undo all changes/modifications, and then you could just reapply the settings in windows blinds and see if that helps.....maybe something went funky when applying the theme.

Command Prompt does not have font size 8*12 by default:

As this font size does not exist you can not "restore" it.

Isn't that a Shortcut properties, not properties of the executive file itself? Anyway, also the Shortcut Properties window has the Font tab where Command Prompt font can be changed.

Try changing your Layout size and see if the font size come back to what you want.

I repeat: Command Prompt font properties do not have 8*12 raster font, you cannot "restore" something that has never existed.

SORRY!

Note   Note
I have been completely wrong, sorry. If excuses are allowed I blame my old ailing eyes for not seeing it even it is clearly visible in my own screenshot

The 8*12 font is there, I just didn't see it.

Once again, my apologies: I was wrong, you are right.
