Send a message to others on my network?

How can i do this?

Ive tried net send but it doesn't seem to do anything?

Is there any way I can also open a chatbox on someone elses computer on my network?

If you are on a network, you can try the net send command.
Simply open a command prompt and type: net send <username> <message>
The username is the user's name on the network whom you try to contact.

Do i have to enable anything for it to work?

Not sure what went wrong. However, you can use this option instead: Homegroup setup instructions
