10 thoughts on “How to Flush DNS on Windows 10”

  1. My Windows 10 does not have “Command Prompt” in the list that appears after right clicking Start. In its location is “Windows Power Shell.” I was able to execute the purge with that resource.

  2. For those not seeing Command Prompt, type this into the “Type here to search” white text box on your taskbar (bottom):
    cmd

  3. This is what happens if I try to flushdns:
    ipconfig/flushdns : The term ‘ipconfig/flushdns’ is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or
    operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try
    again.
    At line:1 char:1
    + ipconfig/flushdns
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (ipconfig/flushdns:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException

  4. I followed the instructions but get a message stating, “ipconfig/flushdns” (without quotes) is a term not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check spelling and path.

    What should I do?
