    You can change DNS servers fast and easy using elevated PowerShell.

    Following command would change IPv4 servers to Cloudflare on wired NIC:

    Set-DNSClientServerAddress Ethernet –ServerAddresses (“1.1.1.1”,”1.0.0.1”)

    To change IPv6 DNS servers:

    Set-DNSClientServerAddress Ethernet –ServerAddresses (“2606:4700:4700::1111”,”2606:4700:4700::1001”)

    Change the connection name Ethernet to WiFi if you want to set wireless NIC DNS servers. Notice that Ethernet and WiFi are default names; if you have renamed them, change it accordingly in above sample commands:

    If the name contains spaces, like my Hyper-V external switches do, set name in single quotes:

    Set-DNSClientServerAddress 'My External Wireless Virtual NIC' –ServerAddresses (“1.1.1.1”,”1.0.0.1”)

    Two questions:

    1) Is Cloudflare likely to adhere to their announced privacy policies?
    2) How much would those policies actually improve privacy?

    I have been using OpenDNS for years. I tried Google DNS but it is overrated and slower. Really got tired of all the so called fixes for slow downloads and streaming just use Google DNS. I am still hesitant to try Cloudflare. Does it display an ad ridden page for a false address.

    Thanks, @Kari ... had to add a space in the IPV4 command after Ethernet. Just FYI....

    Hey @Kari, I have everything,including my Fritz! Box set to Cloudflare now, except my vEthernet(virtual switch).
    When I set my virtual switch, everything was ok, including internet access in my VMs.

    But.... I
    couldn't access my Fritz! Box then. I had to set the that one back to auto resolve
