comment How to make TAB work right in Command Window?
@Pacerier It's not enabled by default in Windows XP, which is the version the OP was asking about. Also I wrote that in 2010 and Windows 8 didn't get released until 2012.

comment Telnet won't work on Windows 8.1
Ah, sorry. That is very unusual. No message? Just straight back to the prompt? I'd expect a "Connecting to ..." or a blank window with a blinking cursor.
