Meaning – The term enable, refers to the process of making something functional. In software or an application, there are some features that are not inherently active for use and must be enabled by the developer or the end-user, depending on the context.
Even in a network, the administrator may either enable or disable access to certain sites or features to the users, depending on the rules set forward by the organisation on the admin himself.
Even as a developer, it is very important for the individual to understand what features are ready to be enabled and which ones are experimental.
Example of usage – “He developed a new gaming application, but enabled only half the features during the launch, because he wanted to take a little more time working on the other features.”
