Powershell launches with very small font


I have Windows 10 for Enterprise running on Surface Pro 3. When I launch PowerShell, the resulting console is very small and has a tiny font and, whilst screen resolution is set to 2160x1440, launching cmd.exe delivers a much more usable font and window size by default.

You can change the size of the font by opening an elevated PowerShell window and clicking on the icon at the top of the left side of the title bar.  Select Properties then click on the Font tab.  From here you can change the size as well as the font type.

Hope this helps!

On Surface Pro 3, Windows 8.1, Powershell reverts back to the tiny font size next time it is opened.

Doesn't work on a Surface Pro 3.  Changing the font produces no noticeable change in the font size.
