    I've recently upgrade from build 10041 to 10049 and now it seems i can't change my DNS settings, when i navigate to the adapter settings the ipv4 settings button is greyed out, unless i can use the CMD prompt or PowerShell, i won't be able to change the DNS settings. I need to be able to change the settings as at school i am required to change to either OpenDNS public or google's public DNS as their DNS isn't that reliable, any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Is that your personal-owned laptop or a school-owned laptop?

    Either way, you shouldn't be using a technical preview of Windows 10 in it - which is still full of bugs.

    Still, this may be a known issue with that build. Did you submit the data to Technet as suggested?

    just a bit of fyi, the technical previews have a lot of settings disabled on purpose so they can control the testing of certain features. if something is greyed out, then most likely it was done on purpose.

    It's not an issue, but intentional. Just change it through an elevated command prompt. (Dan beat me to it)

    Example:
    netsh interface ip set dnsservers name="Wi-Fi" static 8.8.8.8 primary

    netsh interface ip add dns name="Wi-Fi" 8.8.4.4 index=2
    "Wi-Fi" is whatever your interface name is. If you don't know, run the following in cmd: netsh interface show interface
