Use a narrow font:
1. saves space,
2. uses up less pixels (so screen lasts longer)
3. and with the code being shorter easier to understand when looking back at it years later
But seriously, maintaining a few [on-]sites (and some off sites) I just stick with defaults, VS pro at home and 2010 on some client sites for quick rebuilds, farting about with fonts settings is off the table.

I still use Consolas: it's non-proportional, so columns line up, "1" and "l" are visually different, and "0" is barred so it's distinct from "O".
Works for me, so I haven't looked at changing it - I'd probably spend far too long deciding, and then get bored with in a week later!
Generally speaking, I stick to a limited number of fonts: Calibri for emails, Verdana for "normal" text in documents, Consolas for non-proportional work, Arial Bold when I need emphasis.

Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
I've tried several and yet I still find myself using Consolas on Windows and right now Inconsolata on a Mac. I'd be curious to know, of a Consolas replacement for VS. Try as I may, over the years, I have found very few fonts living up to it.
I'm currently using WTE the VS2015 default is. I went to check what it was but I don't have the specific item in the dropdown[^] that is used to set the default font (vs font in a few subareas) for some reason.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

Since it isn't 1980 and I'm not making ASCII-art, I prefer proportional fonts even for coding. But seriously, I find that it makes code more readable because the eyes tend not to get caught in the rivers and lakes that easily form with fixed-width fonts. Also, we all want to get the most out of limited screen real-estate, but the only way to do that with fixed fonts is to squish even the widest characters beyond a reasonably readable point.
I prefer MS Reference Sans Serif, which has clear distinctions between all the ambiguous chars (e.g., Il1 and 0O).
Yeah, I like hitting the "Atlas Obscura" random page now and then - there are place you have never dreamt of in there.And then there is always the "uncrated.com' site when I want to look at things I can't afford.
It's pretty interesting that ANY topic somehow relates to Hitler in only five steps.
Some flower -> Some scientist -> What did he do during WWII? -> Hitler
Some ancient philosopher -> Inspired some other philosopher -> Ran from/inspired Hitler
Some sportsman -> Sport -> Olympics during WWII -> ...
