Alternate fonts for console windows?


I like to find some new/interesting fixed width fonts for console.

We all know Lucida/Courier, what else?


So, the winner is Consolas (which indeed is built in in new Windows 7)

Jeff had good topic (and a later revisit of the topic) that about that:

Other interesting fonts are:

  • Inconsolata
  • Proggy Clean
  • Terminus
  • 6×13 (if you need small font )

Best Solution


I found Consolas from Jeff's blog. It is by far my favorite monospaced font.
