After installation, you have to include php.exe and sqlite3.exe in your PATH environment variable. For example, if you extracted "PHP For Windows" into "C:\php", and extracted "sqlite-tools-win32-x86" into "C:\sqlite", you can set PATH environment variable as below from command prompt.
SETX /M PATH "%PATH%;C:\php;C:\sqlite"
Drupal Console require some extensions. please enable these extensions in your php.ini.
extension=php_gd2.dll extension=php_pdo_sqlite.dll extension=php_curl.dll extension=php_openssl.dll

composer global require drupal/console:~1

or execute one of the chain available, to execute a quick install execute the following command
drupal chain --file="C:\Users\username\.console\chain\quick-start.yml"
