Okay, it seems strange that this isn't on my computer, but is there a (free) Windows font that duplicates the font shown in a DOS command prompt? It doesn't have to be perfectly exact, but similar.

Thanks,
B.J.

You don't have Lucida Console?

Yes I do, but that's not even close. Type something in Word or Powerpoint or something with Lucida Console next to a Command Prompt window and you'll see.

That's because any prompt window you open defaults to a raster font, which I've changed to LC. If you absolutely want the old DOS look, try DOSLike or NewDOS from the DOSFon collection.

You can also turn off the aliasing of any font if you have Photoshop. It makes everything look jagedy like it does on screen. Useful for web design.
