When I send output to Out-Printer in PowerShell the font is very small and all the lines are wrapped after 80 characters.
How do I tell Out-Printer to use a larger font and a line width of 120 characters?

Hi

You can't format the output if you send something directly from PS console. There are ways around it if you if you print it from a file/program like word.
