You can turn on firewall for the current network profile

netsh advfirewall set currentprofile state on

Turn off firewall for the current profile:

netsh advfirewall set  currentprofile state off

Just run below command to check current state of private profile, public profile and domain profile for windows firewall

netsh advfirewall show allprofiles state

You can enable or disable firewall for all profiles with below command through elevated command prompt

netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state off  - disable firewall for all profiles
netsh advfirewall set allprofiles state on  - enable firewall for all profiles
