    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"

    If((Test-Path -LiteralPath "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage") -NE $True) {New-Item "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage" -Force};
    New-ItemProperty -LiteralPath 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage' -Name 'ACP' -Value '65001' -PropertyType String -Force;
    New-ItemProperty -LiteralPath 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage' -Name 'OEMCP' -Value '65001' -PropertyType String -Force;
    New-ItemProperty -LiteralPath 'HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Nls\CodePage' -Name 'MACCP' -Value '65001' -PropertyType String -Force;
