I am using the Windows 2000 OS. How can i set the DOS command window font programmatically. I am able to set it's tile using "title", change color using "color" and change size using "mode con" commands. Is there any similar command to set the font size.

You can set that in the registry under "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console", the value is "FaceName". If you are creating a desktop shortcut, 'IShellLink' along with 'IShellLinkDataList' will allow you to specify that in a NT_CONSOLE_PROPS structure.

Rather than handing you a fish, let's teach you how to bait a hook:

regedit /dump >before

( do the thing with the thing on the menu )

regedit /dump >after

diff before after
