Been searching high and low for an answer to this but I'm not any closer to a solution..
The problem is that whatever i do with the powershell console, it will not "stick". I have tried to open the .exe directly with a domain administrator accont, and after setting my properties; pin the running powershell to my task bar. Have tried to right-click the powershell icon on my taskbar and change the properties from there as well..
Every time i close powershell and start it up again, it reverts back to the hopeless configuration...
My logged in domain user is _not_ a local admin, i use a domain admin account to run powershell.
EDIT: It looks like every property sticks, except the font type Lucida Console! If i try to set Lucida Console, and whatever font size, it will use Raster Fonts the next time i launch powershell. If i set Consolas, it sticks...
This is a problem with the Console, not specifically with PowerShell.exe. (You can reproduce the same behavior with cmd.exe, for example.) I don't know of a fix, other than to use Consolas instead of Lucida Console.
I tested a little bit, and found that Lucida Console works if you put quotation marks around that FaceName string in the registry. However, I'm not sure yet how to modify a particular shortcut to accomplish the same thing (since settings in a shortcut override those registry defaults, if present.)
