Where can I find "Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support" option in Windows server 2016 ?

Where can I find the below option in windows server 2016

"Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support".

I can see this option in windows 10 but not in server 2016.

Hello VivekLande,

The GUI setting might not appear, but the core changes should be the same in Windows Server 2016:

I leave here two ways to enable it, I think they will be helpful for many users:

Win+R -> intl.cpl
Administrative tab
Click the Change system locale button.
Enable Beta: Use Unicode UTF-8 for worldwide language support
Reboot
or alternatively via reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage]
"ACP"="65001"
"OEMCP"="65001"
"MACCP"="65001"

Hi @LimitlessTechnology-2700 ,

Thank you for the response. I actually found the above option you mentioned to enable it Yesterday in one of the post but my intention is to make sure that this option is unchecked on my windows 2016 vm.

I have the same problem with my Windows Server 2016 Standart. I don't see the checkbox and the second solution with regedit broke the server. I have 14393.4704 update installed on my Windows Server. Is there any other solution to enable UTF-8 support?
