I'm running 21.1 on GNU/Linux.  C-x RET for me is a prefix key for
character set thingies, just as one would expect.

Try the following in your .emacs file:  [I'm assuming you're familiar
with .emacs.  If not, feel free to ask again!].  One caveat:  I don't
have an MS-Windows system to try it out on, so none of this is tested.

(global-unset-key "\C-x\C-m")
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-m" mule-keymap)

If that doesn't work, try the following more long-winded version instead.

(global-unset-key "\C-x\C-m")

(global-set-key "\C-x\C-ml" 'set-language-environment)
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-mc" 'universal-coding-system-argument)
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-m\C-\\" 'set-input-method)
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-mX" 'set-next-selection-coding-system)
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-mx" 'set-selection-coding-system)

(global-set-key "\C-x\C-mp" 'set-buffer-process-coding-system)
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-mk" 'set-keyboard-coding-system)
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-mt" 'set-terminal-coding-system)
(global-set-key "\C-x\C-mf" 'set-buffer-file-coding-system)
