Installing Telnet In Windows Vista

So the other day when I was booted into Windows Vista I wanted to play some old BBS games that I haven't played in a while using Telnet. This is where I noticed that Telnet isn't installed automatically in Vista like it is in XP. This is a very simple fix though and can be done in a matter of just a couple minutes. So let me show you how.

First you will need to click on the the Start Menu (Vista Globe). Then select Control Panel. From here you will need to select Programs and Features in the Control Panel window.

The Programs and Features window

Now in the side panel in the window you will need to select Turn Windows Features on or off. You will then seen a window pop up with a list of a bunch of things. You will need to scroll down to Telnet Client and then put a check in the box and then click OK. From here Windows Vista will install Telnet on your system.

Windows Features window

Now you should have Telnet installed in Windows Vista. The installation may seem like it is stalled but it will install after a bit or at least it did on my machine for a little bit. Have fun with Telnet.

Hey Jack. I have a question for you. Someone named WHS sent me telling me you were amazing with photos. So I have a photo of my girlfriend. She got her senior pics taken and she bought some and downloaded some. The downloaded ones have water marks on them so I am wondering if you could help me get rid of them. Please email me at thanks
