I just want to get rid of Courier/Courier New on my system. It looks just horrible. I tried to replace it with FontSubstitutes key in the registry.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]

"Courier New CE,0"="Consolas"

"Courier New CE,238"="Consolas"


This didn't help. After reboot applications still use Courier/Courier New font.

Ok, I have figured it out. You need to set "Courier New"="Consolas" and "Courier"="Consolas". Don't even touch keys mentioned above. – Teddy Jul 14 '12 at 6:58

Seriously, you shouldn’t.

This font is needed by Windows and applications. It is protected for a reason.

Try use Mactype, it simplifies all the manually settings for you.
