    Just got a new Dell desktop PC. XPS with Windows Version 10.0.14393. I've tried following steps to install different console fonts (there are not many listed in the layout/font window). Example, in Regedit/Console/TrueTypeFont I add a name to the list 000 and then modify and type in Terminal Regular for the data, which is listed in Control Panel fonts.
    After re-booting, I expect to see that font in the cmd window font properties but no luck.
    In Notepad "Terminal" font is listed. I've tried several others. Any ideas?

    Thanks. I read through that link but did not see how it addresses my issue,
    where I used regedit to add another font, re-booted, and the font was not listed.
    It would be helpful if there were official documentation, or some confirmation
    that what I tried should work. The issue is with ascii characters in the low range,
    for example character code #4 (a diamond-shaped character), when displaying
    file contents that include this character with the TYPE command, the character shows
    up as a box with a question mark. Changing to another of the 5 fonts, including a
    raster font, does not solve the issue.
    In the console window, when I press Alt+numpad 4, the character displays ok.
    Still unresolved.

    This has been resolved. I needed raster fonts in the console window and made the silly
    error of thinking "Raster Fonts" was just a heading for what followed in the font list.
