Description

According to #12921 only Linux, FreeBSD and Darwin (macOS) provides environment variables that are "multi-user" safe.

I'm not a Windows expert but as far as I know it's possible to configure user environment variables on Windows that are only accessible to the currently logged-in user: https://stackoverflow.com/a/4477669

Maybe this restriction should be lifted?
