Using Consolas in PowerShell Plus on a 64 bit machine

I love the Consolas Font for code. I spent a while trying to get PowerShell Plus to use the font in the interactive console. I noticed that when I went to save my settings I got a Console Settings windows just like the console for CMD and PowerShell out of the box.

It kept going back to Lucida Console.  I added consolas with the PS Plus Add font utility but that didn’t do the trick on my 64 bit machine.

I found this article on Scott Hanselman’s Blog and it seemed to do the trick.

Add a REG_SZ with name 00 and value Consolas to HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Console\TrueTypeFont

Note that you need to reboot.
