    Hello!
    Does anyone knw where WindowsXP save the default settings (fonts lines size etc..) for the Command Prompt ?
    I have been searched in to the registry, but... witch key can be?
    I want to fork a command prompt from a program (written in C) and I want to to control from the program where and how to show the command prompt window.
    Thanks in advance for any ideas!
    Bye Raf

    Thanks!!!

    Yessss!!!!!!
    The registry key is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Console
    There are ALL of the DEFAULT settings to start the CommandPrompt (very funny to play with...)
    Many Thanks for your help, Khayman!!
    Bye
