How to enable the Telnet Client in Windows 10 (command line)

Telnet is disabled by default in Windows 10. So what happens when you need to test telnet or specific ports and you don’t want to use putty.

In an elevated command prompt enter the following

dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:TelnetClient

 

ite-telnet-enable-cmd

Test by typing “telnet” in the command prompt.

ITE-telnet-test-cmd

You can now do awesome commands like “telnet myemailserver.mydomain.xyz imap”.
