    Windows 10 local IP doesn't work if network cable is disconnected

    My local LAN which includes my laptop is setup as a static network. I have noticed that when the network cable is disconnected on the laptop I can't ping the laptop from itself. The VMs which are also on the laptop cannot ping the laptop's address from their local bridged addresses.
    I can't remember having this problem on Windows 7 and earlier. Is there some fault on my setup or is that the way Windows 10 itself is designed?
