Right-click-->Properties does not apply to other console windows - only to ones with same name (i.e. cmd.exe). Can I do this for ALL console windows?

There has been a question on Stackoverflow answering the same question: Windows default size for console application – sinni800 Jan 27 '11 at 12:41

Summary of the link (just in case it gets lost):

  • Settings are stored in Registry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console
  • Or right-click on the title bar of a console window, in the drop down menu click "Defaults".
