Vertical tab '\v'

I'm trying to make a vertical tab using cout << "\v"; but all I get is a wierd looking char in the consol.

How do I make a vertical tab? Everywhere I look I'm told to use '\v'. But it doesnt work...?
Are you sure your console can handle vertical tabs?
What can I do to find out if it can? Isnt every console capable of handling vertical tabs? What can I use instead?
This might be a dumb question... but can't you just print a bunch of newlines?

cout << "\n\n\n\n";
