How can I customize the window that opens when starting a command from the Windows "Run" command?

If I start a console-based command (such as cmd or powershell) from the Windows Vista "Run..." command (Windows-R), it opens in a default command window. I'd like to customize the size, colors, and fonts of this Window. Is there a way to do it, maybe with a registry hack?

Start up cmd from anywhere and right click on the title bar. Select "Defaults". Make the changes to fonts/colors/etc, and hit OK. These settings will be saved and applied whenever you open a new cmd window (unless they are overridden by a shortcut with specific settings).
