[New-bugs-announce] [issue39658] Include user scripts folder to PATH on Windows

New submission from Luca <lucatrv at hotmail.com>:

When installing Python on Windows, and selecting the option “Add Python to PATH”, the following folders are added to the "PATH" environment variable:
- C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38\Scripts\
- C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python38\
However also the following folder should be added, _before_ the other two:
- C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Python\Python38\Scripts\
This is needed to correctly expose scripts of packages installed with `pip install --user` (`pip` emits a warning when installing a script with `--user` flag if that folder is not in "PATH").
