#StackBounty: #windows #command-line #windows-registry #fonts How can I add additional fonts to the Windows console?

Bounty: 50

I found a guide online stating that you need to edit the registry in order to add new fonts to the list of available fonts in Command Prompt: specifically, you have to edit the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionConsoleTrueTypeFont key by adding string values with keys 00, 000, 0000, and so on, with their values being the names of the fonts. I’ve already done this. I added the font names to the registry, as you can in the screenshot below, and restarted the computer.

regedit

However, the fonts which I’ve added aren’t showing up in the list. More specifically, I added Inconsolata and Source Code Pro. But I don’t see them in the list of available fonts.

What am I missing?

I am using Windows 10 version 1803, build 17134.165.
