Using Consolas as the Windows console font

by Bharat Suneja

If you don’t like the font choices (or lack thereof) in Windows console, or want Consolas (a new font available by installing IE7 or Windows Vista) as your console font, you can add it as an option by going to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\ CurrentVersion\TrueTypeFont.

Scott Hanselman shows you how in this blog post.

Question for the Windows Vista folks – why not make it available as a choice by default? As the name suggests, it’s an ideal fit for the console/text-based apps.
