Windows – How to set the default font for gvim on Windows


I use gvim on Windows. By default it uses the Fixedsys font, but I would like to use Consolas as the default font instead.

I tried to set it using the menu option; it worked but it was reset the next time I started gvim.

How can I set the default font in gvim? Can I add anything to .vimrc?

i would add it to _gvimrc, the relevant part of mine looks like this:

if has("gui_kde")
    set guifont=Consolas/13/-1/5/50/0/0/0/0/0
elseif has("gui_gtk")
    set guifont=Consolas\ 13
elseif has("gui_running")
    if has("win32") || has("win64")
        set guifont=Consolas:h12
        set guifont=-xos4-terminus-medium-r-normal--14-140-72-72-c-80-iso8859-1
