Archived from groups: microsoft>public>windowsxp>customize, others (more info?)

When changing font in command prompt (cmd.exe), the choice is limited
to the following:

Lucida Console
Raster Fonts

Is there any way to have other monospaced fonts appear on this list?

TIA!

The registry changes work, thanks!

The key is a system reboot, because it may appear that some fonts do
not work. For example, Andale Mono and NetTerm OEM work right away,
but Consolas, Courier New or OCR A Extended require a reboot. Only one
article mentioned this.

Glad to help. Keep having fun. Wink

You can kill explorer.exe and restart it to refresh changes made in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER. But you have to reboot to refresh HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
