plz how to i use telnet? when i try it says

'telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

You can also enable the feature using an Administrative command prompt, useful for keeping a script around to easily add features needed on the fly.

For example here is how to enable Telnet:

dism /online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:TelnetClient

Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
Version: 6.3.9600.16384

Image Version: 6.3.9600.16384

Enabling feature(s)
The operation completed successfully.

To see the names of features to be able to script others, issue the "dism /online /get-features" command.

I have found an other fast command from telnet:
  1. Open the Command Prompt by typingcmd into the Run box.
  2. At the command line, type pkgmgr /iu:”TelnetClient”and press ↵ Enter.
  3. After a moment, you will returned to the command prompt.
  4. Restart the command prompt to begin using Telnet
