GeneralCreators update, distorted console font Pin

Just opened a console window for the first time after Creators update and the consolas font just doesn't look right to me. Unsure | :~
Looks like this => console font[^]
It looks like it's in the wrong aspect ratio or something. And a bit blurry.
I heard someone else mention this at work but didn't think much of it until now.

Anyone else experiencing this? I checked my display settings and don't believe they've changed.

EDIT
Oops. Blush | :O
Well, I tried Courier New and it looked worse.
Then I changed it to Consolas 14 and it looks much better.
I do believe that the Creators update changed that back to 12 though so that's why I was confused.

EDIT 2
No, there is definitely something screwy here.
I noticed that the font size (14) really didn't look different from my original image (in size, though it was clearer) so I opened up another console and set it to Consolas 12 and the font became very small (in comparison) -- smaller than the original.
Here's the comparison image. The bottom console shows it at 12 and top at 14.
Console Font comparison[^]

This is just those odd things software devs do to users and then say, "we didn't change anything" Hmmm | :|

EDIT 3
I know this is way too much info on this thing, but I was curious what font it was originally set to, even though I originally clicked the properties and it said it was Consolas 12.

I have set it to every font available in the Properties dialog of the console window and cannot achieve that original blurriness.
Well, then, problem solved. Thanks, Microsoft!! Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
