Session state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive- SharePoint2010

What is meant by session state? What exactly its functionality? How it works?

Complete Error Message:
Session state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive. Please also make sure that System.Web.SessionStateModule or a custom session state module is included in the <configuration>\<system.web>\<httpModules> section in the application configuration.

Before you start your troubleshooting, make sure that the State Service service application is running. How you will check this?

-Open your Central Administration
-Manage service applications
- check the service application by the name ‘state service service application’

What exactly I did to resolve this issue? Please refer the following:

2-step resolution:
Make the enableSessionState is set to true, How?-Please refer below:

<pages enableSessionState="true" enableViewState="true" enableViewStateMac="true" validateRequest="false" pageParserFilterType="Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationRuntime.SPPageParserFilter, Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" asyncTimeout="7">

Make sure that the remove and add lines exist in the modules section for Session.

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">
<remove name="Session" />
