Select Telnet Client by ticking the box. Enable Telnet Client and click OK.

To install, open Control Panel, and navigate to Programs, Turn.

If you want to enable it, you can do so using the Command Prompt or via the Control Panel. Enter the Administrator password if it prompt. Alternatively, you may download the Putty SSH utility as it can also be used as Telnet client for Windows. Click Turn Windows Features on or off. I type this command in a Windows Command Prompt in XP. Com appears and then telnet window opens, but there is nothing inside it.

The telnet command will not work on newer versions of Microsoft Windows by default.

In the Control Panel window, navigate to Program and Features section and click the Turn Windows features on or Off. Error message telnet is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. This does not mean that Windows does not contain the Telnet. Right click on CMD and click on Run as administrator. Microsoft adds Background Blur feature to Skype. Now if you try telnet command in command prompt or search in Apps, you will get the correct telnet prompt as below.
