I really hate manually setting up cmd and powershell cmd shell properties like window height/width, font, coloring, enabling Quick Edit.

Doe anyone know if there a script I can run to set things up the way I want when entering a new server or workstation?

See: Where are the default settings saved for the Command prompt defaults?

Export the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console registry folder to a .reg file, and then you can easily import them by double-clicking on the file. To automate the import, run regedit /s c:\temp\console.reg and the registry file will be imported automatically.

On my Windows 7 system this registry key controls both cmd and Powershell settings.
