Of course you can...

CMD window->Right Click CMD icon (upper left corner)->Properties->Font

Adjust to your liking

Not quite solved, please help

Hello there,

this answer is excellent, but I need some more help. The problem is that *every* program opens small console window. If I fix cmd.exe then it appears correctly, but any other console program opens again small window. So these settings must be inherited from some central place. I need to find this thing and set proper font system-wide. OS is Win7 Professional RTM, default visual theme, 120% DPI setting.

Thanks in advance.
