I'm trying to use Powershell to enable the devlopment feature on a SharePoint site (as per this article: When I do this I'm presented with the following error:

The term 'Enable-SPFeature' is not recognized' as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.

A screenshot of my input/output is below:

I'm unsure why this is happening - I'm on the SharePoint server I want to enable this feature on and as far as I know everything required is installed. What am I doing wrong?
