Powershell opening with ridiculously tiny font (about 5) and won't change to new default settings

view full story

http://superuser.com – Powershell is opening with extremely small font (about 5 pts). When I go to Defaults > Font, the setting is a reasonable 8 x 12 pixels but that is not what is showing on the screen. I try changing some of these settings, but there is no change. When it first opens it appears for a split second at the expected size and then shrinks into the top left corner. This appears to be a bug. I have seen that others have had trouble with Powershell fonts but nothing as annoying as this. I am hoping someone has found a cure. OS: Windows 8.1 Powershell opened as Administrator. (HowTos)
