I had Windows 10, there I had text file with cyrillic characters.

Recently I reinstalled Win 10 as well as installed Ubuntu 16.04. Now when I open that file on both systems, I see some unreadable characters. If I use Windows and open file in Notepad++, manually change character set to Windows 1251 - it shows what I expect to see.

What should I do so that it always be with that character set? I mean not only Np++ or gedit, but also all other programs, that can read file and process data
