    You can get the font size and type with GetConsoleFontInfo (I think) in Windows, but I'm not sure if you can change it. Check MSDN for the exact function name and structure that it returns, I think it's CONSOLE_FONT_INFO.
    p.s. What the alphabet would look like without q and r.

    Bump! Any other info from anyone?

    I looked on MSDN but didn't find a language reference for C!

    Don't bump your threads. Doing so is against the rules and may result in your threads being deleted.

    There are some registry hacks that work on some OS versions, sometimes, look under HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Console.
