I believe that to enable colour on a Windows console, you need to use an
API function, which can get a bit clumsy because there isn't an
equivalent to \e[0m to reset to default, so you have to retrieve the
current console colour beforehand. Windows 10 /might/ accept the ANSI
escape sequences, but I'm not sure.
