Console font for dos mode programs?

6 posts in this topic

I'm running a dos-mode program using AutoIt and I'd like to be able to specify the font dimensions- this determines the default window dimensions. You can see the choices windows offers if you check out the properties of a desktop shortcut that points to a dos-mode executeable: the defaut is 8x12 pixels, but 6x8 is much more compact but reasonably readable.

This option can also be accessed by right-clicking on the title bar of the console window, but I'd really rather not go through all the GUI interaction I'd need to *fix* the font size after the program starts every time, and then reposition the window.

Thanks!

Check out the registry at HKCU\Console\ and see what changes to what when you manualy set the font, etc. Won't take long to figure out which setting you want. Setting the same key values in HKU\Default\Console will make it the default for new users. I don't remember if it can be seen in (maybe?) HKLM\SYSTEM\Console?

Change the registry path to HKU\.DEFAULT\Console\... to make it the default for new users and system account.
