Type regedit and press Enter. Now registry editor window will open. Next, browse to the following Path given below.


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Console\TrueTypeFont



After browsing the above path, Right click on right side of the Window to open New. Click on New > String Value > Name the String Value to a unique number. You can assign it as 0000 (Any number which must be unique).



Double Click on newly created string value (Say 0000). Assign the Font name you wish to use (Say Droid Sans Mono) on Value data. Click on OK, Apply and restart the system.
