How to enable DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) in Windows 10

DoH support is included in the preview versions of Windows 10, but the feature is not enabled by default. If you want to use DoH when performing "DNS queries" in your applications or browsers, you can enable it manually from Settings or by modifying the Windows registry.

  • On Ethernet connections (wired), open Settings> Network & Internet> Status.
  • Click Properties and choose Edit IP or Edit DNS.
  • For Wi-Fi (wireless) connections, open the network page and click the adapter properties link, then select Edit IP or Edit DNS.
