Strange, I can't say why it does not work for you. I works on all my machines.

Does other settings you change work ?
Is the font change written to the settings file ? ( ExplorerPanel.xml )

It is very strange. I cannot reproduce that.
There is something unique with you setup that blocks it from gettings the font then. I have no idea what that can be. Maybe some security software, I seen very strange behaviour from some security software causing very strange issues.

Is it all fonts or just consolas ?

Just found out that the local cause the issue.

Region > Administrative > Language for non-Unicode programs
Choosing Japanese or Chinese will cause the problem.
English will be fine.

The fonts that always work:
Microsoft JhengHei UI
Small Fonts
Segoe UI

fonts that not work in chinese/japanese locale:
Consolas
Comic Sans MS
Webdings
Wingdings
Impact

I'm not there is an automatic solution for this.
Might be an issue with Windows.

However MC is a "Unicode aware program" so that settings should not affect MC.  Strange.
