comment Is there a way to permanently set the font and window size in putty?
It's worth pointing out that you can also save changes to the Default Settings session, which will then be applied to all new sessions you create. You need never see that horrible default font again :)

comment PuTTY alternative on Windows: better saved session organization
+1, mRemoteNG does exactly what the asker requires. It's worth pointing out too that mRemoteNG is a wrapper around PuTTy, so if you're used to PuTTy you will find it simple to transfer.
