.enable_unicode 1

Remarks

The .enable_unicode command affects the output of the dt (Display Type) command.

In WinDbg, the .enable_unicode command also affects the display in the Locals window and the Watch window. These windows are automatically updated after you issue .enable_unicode.

You can also select or clear Display 16-bit values as Unicode on the shortcut menu of the Locals or Watch window to specify the display for USHORT arrays and pointers.
