Solution 1


Assign the font to your form and it will apply it to all the form's controls.
for eaxmaple something like that will work:

$form1.Text = "My PowerShell Window"
$form1.Name = "form1"
$form1.Font = "Courier New"

It's amazing, but this highly simplified form works. My 5.

I added more detailed answer on how to use full .NET API
Also, OP may need to know how to load the System.Windows.Forms assembly.

Happy New Year!

Solution 2

In addition to the correct Solution 1:

For complete form of font creation, you should use regular .NET API:

In any cases, first you need to load the required assembly in your script:
$null = [System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("System.Windows.Forms")

and only then:

$form = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Form
# ...
$form.Font = New-Object System.Drawing.Font( `
   New-Object System.Drawing.FontFamily("Arial"), `
   12, `
# or something like that

See other constructors you can use:[^].
