Hi, George.  You might try posting your question to stackoverflow.com
<https://stackoverflow.com>.  If you search for _setmode, _O_U16TEXT,
and/or _O_U8TEXT there, you'll find answers to some related questions,
possibly some that already explain what you are observing.  Take a look
at this post

In general, getting the Windows console to display non-ASCII characters
can be challenging for a variety of reasons, especially when using
std::cout or printf().

So, basically I am trying to add a unique character, the symbol of power of 2 it is, so I set the mode as above to '16TEXT' and then printed the character in the 2nd line. Finally I wanted to add some more text, so i turned the mode to '8TEXT'.  Then I put a 'cout' to whrite the rest of the text but it didn't print anything. I would be really thankful if you could advise me. Thank you for your attention.
