Post by katayama_hirofumi_mz »

Could I change the font of Command Prompt?
Many non-English users may want this.

In regedit, create an entry DejaVu Sans Mono of type REG_SZ under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SysFontSubstitutes\ and assign to it your font name.

Also, there is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console\FaceName but it seems that it does not work.

To add a new font to the list:
Open the registry editor (regedit.exe) and go to this registry key:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT \CurrentVersion \Console \TrueTypeFont]
0 = "Lucida Console"

Add a new font to the list by creating a new registry STRING value (REG_SZ) with the name "00" (Two zeros) . If needing to add a third font then use three zeros etc.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE \Microsoft \Windows NT \CurrentVersion \Console \TrueTypeFont]
0 = "Lucida Console"
00 = "Consolas"

Might have to restart the computer to properly apply the new font in the command prompt.
