The Console key stores data for the console subsystem, which hosts all character-mode applications, such as Command Processor. In addition, the Console key can contain subkeys for custom command windows.

Change method

To change the console window settings, click the system menu icon in the title bar, and then select either Defaults to change the settings for all instances of that window, or Properties to change the current window only.

Activation method

Changes made in the Properties dialog box are effective immediately. Changes made either in the Defaults dialog box or in the registry are effective the next time you open a console window.
