There does not appear to be such an option.  When one sets the system locale, one is setting it explicitly for programs that do not support Unicode.  Thus it would seem to the case that Unicode is the Windows 7+ default.  Whether this is UTF-8 or another variant, however, is currently moot.

No idea how one might ask it that question.
