How to make DOS prints darker if Courier New is too light

When printing from DOS with the Courier New font, the result sometimes may seem too light.

To make it darker, you can change the print quality in the Printer's options to fine or high quality, or you may select a darker font, like the aSwIt Mono one, as shown in this video.

Let's go:

  • Print from DOS to LPT1:
  • Print preview with Courier New
  • Choose a darker font, like aSwIt Mono 437
  • Print from DOS to LPT1: again
  • The second one is darker

if you're a Courier New fan, you can download the Dark Courier font provided by HP.
Just search google for "HP Dark Courier font".
