Windows 7: How to export command prompt settings frm the registry?

How to export command prompt settings frm the registry?

Hello,

I configured the command prompt window (size, colors, position) and now want to export this settings from the registry to save them in a reg file for later use on other computers. These setting do get saved somewhere in the registry but I don't remember where (did this on XP a couple of years ago).

Can you help me? Do you know which key I have to export? I'm running Windows 7 Pro.

Thanks a lot!

I don't know where they are stored either. But 2 approaches.. use SysInternals registry monitor while changing the settings, or use Sandboxie and see what it changes in the Sandbox registry files.

Thanks, I found it. The settings are at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console.

Actually, it looks like the Command Prompt setup data is under

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\Command Prompt]

At least that's where I found the changes I normally make (White on blue text, QuickEdit, 85x50 window, position 300 x 275).
