In Windows 10 Calculator first choose Scientific (topleft of the window), type in the number you want to square, then click the "2nd" button (topleft) and then the "2Vx" button below it.

For Windows 10 the function is available, it looks somewhat like a tick rather than a square root symbol. As for other versions of windows, refer to Terry and Dennis' advice.

You can click x^y then 0.5 and you'll get the square root.

You have to switch between standard and scientific. Help tells you how to take the number back and forth.
