Use Command Prompt to change the DNS settings on Windows 10.
Search for Command Prompt, right-click the top result, and select the Run as administrator option.
Type the following command to launch the tool to change the networking settings and press Enter:netsh
Type the following command to identify the names of the network adapters and press Enter:interface show interface
Type the following command to set the primary DNS IP address and press Enter:interface ip set dns name="ADAPTER-NAME" source="static" address="X.X.X.X"In the command, remember to change ADAPTER-NAME with the name of your network adapter you identified on step No. 4, and change X.X.X.X with the IP address of the DNS server that you want to use.If you want to use Cloudflare, Google Public DNS, or Cisco OpenDNS, you can use these settings:
Cloudflare: 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168
Google Public DNS: 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199
OpenDNS: 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206For example, this command sets the primary DNS addres to 220.127.116.11:interface ip set dns name="Ethernet1" source="static" address="18.104.22.168"
Type the following command to add an alternative DNS IP address and press Enter:
interface ip add dns name="ADAPTER-NAME" addr="X.X.X.X" index=2
In the command, remember to change ADAPTER-NAME with the name of your network adapter you queried on step No. 4, and change X.X.X.X with the secondary address that you want to use.
For example, this command sets the secondary DNS addres to 22.214.171.124:
interface ip add dns name="Ethernet1" addr="126.96.36.199" index=2
Once you complete the steps, Windows 10 will start using the new DNS server addresses to resolve domain names to numeric addresses that your device can understand.
You’ll need a new app to open this microsoft-edge – server 2019 – Microsoft Community Wasted a lot of time on this. Fresh install all patches applied and opened IE and was asked to update to Edge, Download> accept, continue install> accept and then “You’ll need a new app ……” Most of the posts I found show a resolution approach with a premise that edge is installed. I don’t know why but Edge is not installed in my case and trying sites with a link to install fail is a similar fashion. To resolve I needed to download from
