Hi
I am trying to control Splunk from windows Prompt but it shows me the above statement,” SPLUNK IS NOT RECOGNIZED AS INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL COMMAND.”
How do i take control over it via windows prompt?

try:

"C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin\splunk" help

if it works then you need to add "\Program Files\Splunk\bin" to your %PATH environment variable to be able run splunk command without specifying the full path. Alternatively you can just type the full path (as above) every time you run splunk command.

If it doesn't work then you've installed Splunk on other drive (D:?), in other folder or the installation is corrupt. You can deinstall Splunk and install it again with default options (follow the installation manual 1:1: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.0.1/Installation/InstallonWindows). At the end of the installation you should see a confirmation screen/window that the installation was successfull. You also have to see a running splunk service in services (services.msc).
