What font does the peace love world use

What font does CMD.exe use by default for output in Windows XP?

It's mostly just curiosity.

I'm not sure if it's Courier, Courier New, Lucida Console, or something similar.


Screenshot of a very fresh XP SP3 installation:

None of them. Bitmap fonts are used. You will then find these in the various files in the Fonts folder. However, the Font Viewer does not allow you to view them very well. Basically every file consists of a different code page or font size.

However, I would highly recommend using a TrueType font such as Lucida Console or Consolas. When set to raster fonts, the Windows console will not be able to process Unicode.

If you go to Properties and click the Font tab, you will be informed about it there.
