Every time I start using a new conmsole application, I have to set my font to Consolas (FTW!), colours, console and window size for that application (Save settings for all windows with this title, or whatever).

How can I set, especially my font to Consolas, for every console window I ever open?

ADDENDUM: Windows Server 2008 R2 (and I assume Windows 7) automatically keeps options you set, without asking whether to say them or not.

Windows 7 does indeed save settings. – alex Feb 13 '10 at 8:08

Have you tried right clicking on the title bar and selecting Defaults?

Nope, never even noticed it before. Thanks. – ProfK Jan 24 '10 at 6:39
