howto://add the Telnet client to Windows 10

Just a quick reminder to myself on how to enable the Telnet Client in Windows 10, since I always seem to forget.

  1. Open an administrative command prompt.
  2. Run this command
    dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:telnetclient
  3. Done. It will be immediately available, even in existing, non-admin command prompts you already have open.

If you want to test it out, try this! telnet://towel.blinkenlights.nl/

  2. Run this command
    powercfg /hibernate off
  3. Profit 🙂
