Are there any safe tools/apps that display the "ipconfig /displaydns" output in a user friendly and viewable way?

you can do the command ipconfig /displaydns > displaydns.txt & displaydns.txt to get it in a text file which is searchable. I haven't seen any tools as of yet.

The first will create the file and the second with the & will open the file.

Would you know why my DNS cache only show around 100 or less results when inputting " ipconfig /displaydns "?

I don’t think there is a limit so you may not have that many entries, especially if you don’t visit that many sites.

I did a bit of research (albeit slow due to being on my phone) but it looks like Windows will hold the entries for 1 day once added. There is a registry setting that you can change to keep them for longer but that’s not advisable.
