Running chcp 65001 at the command prompt will set that console to use the UTF-8 codepage.

To have every console default to using the UTF-8 codepage make the following registry change:
  1. Start -> Run -> regedit
  2. Go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor\Autorun]
  3. Change the value to chcp 65001
