We've talked about this before, and rejected it. The reason is that it
breaks when you have more than one version installed on the same system. 

We've considered adding a checkbox (off by default) to the installation

Does it not help to just use the "Command Prompt" shortcut on the
PostgreSQL menu in the start menu?
