How do we change the font-size in solar putty

When attempting to change the font-size in the Solar-puTTY terminal we are given a link to 'puTTY' - so after changing the font-size there and saving it and reloading Solar-puTTY the font does not reflect the new font-size. The font-size is only applied in puTTY.

Operating System: Windows XP/7/8/8.1/10 (any version of Windows will generally have the same steps as below) Solution: This is because PuTTY for some reason does not save the default font height. The solution is to update the value in the Windows Registry from which the default font size is being used. Steps: 1. Open 'Windows Registry' ( Win+R > type "regedit" > hit Enter ) 2. Navigate to 'Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SimonTatham\PuTTY\Sessions\Default%20Settings' 3. Update the value for key 'FontHeight' to 'c' Note: The value is in hexadecimal, so original value 'a' corresponds to decimal 10, while the new value 'c' corresponds to decimal 12
