How? I can see only two options in the properties dialog: "Lucida Console" and "Raster Fonts". Is there any way to switch to Consolas (short of replacing the Lucida TTF file with the Consolas TTF file)?

Scott Hanselman had a post on exactly that topic Using Consolas as Windows Console Font. Also here.

    For those too lazy to click: Fire up regedit and add a REG_SZ value to HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Console/TrueTypeFont with the name 00 and the value Consolas. Then reboot.
