I don't think Windows ever had python2.exe/python3.exe, but I could be wrong.
Not that I'm aware of in the python.org installers, and I don't think ActivePython does either. I'm less sure about Enthought or Anaconda (since I've never used either of them on Windows).
Looking at my Windows VM...
- from a Miniconda install (equivalent, I think, to a bare-bones Anaconda with the minimal package set required for a function "python" and "conda"):
c:\>where python C:\Miniconda3\python.exe
c:\>where python3 INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).
- from a user-created conda environment:
(da36) c:\>where python C:\Miniconda3\envs\da36\python.exe C:\Miniconda3\python.exe
(da36) c:\>where python3 INFO: Could not find files for the given pattern(s).
I forgot to mention that those "python.exe" are all Python 3.6 executables (or hardlinks thereof).
