Here's a good blog post about setting env vars on Windows:
It's not really much harder than on Unix platforms.
But it affects to all Python installs. Can teachers recommend to set PYTHONUTF8 environment variable for students?
The only catch is that Windows users will often not know about such env vars or how to use them, because on Windows you typically set up your configuration via the application and using the registry.
Perhaps we could have both: an env var to enable UTF-8 mode and a registry key set by the installer.
I don't want to recommend env vars and registry for conda and portable Python users...
