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:


Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker.

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.

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.
