Apparently, Windows 10 supports pIqaD natively. I've been told this,
though I haven't confirmed it myself. However, I saw this tweet

He uses the pIqaD font found here:
which uses Everson's Unicode code points. Interestingly, it includes a
web font. Without a corresponding input method editor, the font is of
limited use. Has anybody written one?

I've got the latest Windows 10 preview build, but I don't know how he
got pIqaD to appear in that Command Prompt window. There is no
localization for Klingon. I suspect this was a developer's joke.

The font creator has more blog posts about Klingon on Windows here:

You can follow the instructions here <> to install a Klingon locale and keyboard map. The keyboard didn't work for me in Windows 10, and I'm not seeing the font in console or winrt programs. However, the Region control panel works fine: <>
