How do I flush my DNS Cache in Windows 10 and 11?

When a computer needs to do a DNS lookup it will first look in its internal cache. If the computer is not refreshing its DNS cache in a timely manner, you may need to manually clear the DNS information.

The first step is to open a command terminal window. You can do so by right clicking on the Start menu icon and selecting Windows PowerShell (Admin) or Windows Terminal (Admin) from the context list. 

Alternatively you can open the command terminal by typing cmd in the Start menu's search bar, and pressing Enter.

Once the command terminal is open, type the following command in the window and hit enter.

ipconfig /flushdns
