    JetBrains recently released Mono, a typeface for developers.

    I would like to use this font in the Windows Command shell (cmd).

    To achieve this I tried to follow the steps in this wikiHow article, but without success (the font does not appear in the font tab after editing the registry).

    How can I do this? (if at all?)

    Could not install this font in PuTTY either, unless I allowed the installation of variable-pitched fonts.

    Guess that's my problem for the Windows Comand shell?

    Looks closely similar to Segoe UI which is what I always changed my fonts to in notepad and system wide on 8.1.

    Am I missing something?

    Wish they also did complete Nerd Fonts.

    Now I still have to patch them to maintain a nice/powerful prompt (on macOS, using Powerlevel10k).
