Easiest Way to Change Windows 7 DNS Settings

by: - Last updated on: November 19th, 2018

A self proclaimed geek like me found it a bit tricky the first time I tried to change the DNS settings in Windows 7. Of course it is not a complicated process, but no one would mind an easier way to change the DNS settings especially when you are someone who would like to change the preferred DNS every now and then.

As you might know, Google recently launched a public DNS service which claimed to be better than any other free DNS services like OpenDNS. They even claimed to be faster than OpenDNS. Anyway, here is a free tool that lets you change your DNS settings in a single click – DNS Jumper!


The best part about DNS Jumper is – it’s free, portable and easy-to-use. Just run the application and click on the desired DNS service button and it’ll immediately change your system DNS settings.

It has pre-configures DNS settings for:

  • Google DNS
  • Open DNS
  • Comodo DNS
  • Advantage DNS
  • Ultra DNS
  • DNS 8 to 16

The rest of the options are your default DNS, Open NIC and you can set the DNS just by a single click. Other than Windows 7, it works on Windows Vista and XP too.

  1. Thats a neat little program.

    I personally use Google DNS. I’ve noticed slightly quicker response times when loading web pages and using instant messenger services.

    Google DNS is practically never down so I really don’t have any need to change it. Although its a nice tool to have. Thanks for sharing.
