By now, most of you have heard about the Windows 10 update that is currently rolling out to all Windows 10 PCs and tablets that are eligible for Windows 10.
The update is rolling out through the Windows Update portal, and when the update rolls out to your Windows 10 computer, you will see a small, bright red dot on your screen.
The dot indicates the new DNS lookup for the domain you are trying to access.
When you click on the dot, you should see the following dialog box: You are asked to provide a username and password for the account that you want to access the DNS lookup.
Enter that username and your password for that account.
If you have multiple DNS servers configured on your computer, this dialog box may be grayed out.
Click the Add button to enter your domain and click the Verify button.
Once you confirm that your account is being added, you can continue to the DNS entry for your domain.
The DNS lookup will return the IP address of the new domain that you entered earlier.
If your domain has more than one IP address, you may have to enter additional IP addresses.
Once you have entered the IP addresses for your new domain, click on Save to save your changes.
This will take you to a page that lists all the DNS servers that you can access.
This is where you should use the search engine, nslookup, to locate all of the DNS names that you have added to your domain in order to perform the DNS lookups.
When you are finished with the DNS searches, click the Search button to search for a DNS server.
This search engine will return results for any DNS server that you enter in the Search box.
If the DNS server you entered matches the name that is returned in the DNS search, click Save to proceed to the next step.

Click on the DNS name that you just entered and then click on a name to view the results.
You can then navigate through the DNS results to see the name you entered in the search box.

You’ll see the results of the search for mydomain in the results that are shown below.
This example looks for mydns.com, which is the domain name in this example.
