Network Settings "Unexpected error" while changing DNS

Hi all. I was going on about my day and I decided that I wanted to change my DNS to cloudflares DNS. While changing i got error pop up stating "an unexpected error occurred. Not all of your requested changes in settings could be made." I quickly looked up how to solve this and one thread stated that VMware was the problem. I thought it would be a good idea to uninstall it but VMware Bridge Protocol still resided. Im still unsure what to do next since not many videos or threads exist of this topic.

Thanks.

How exactly did you change your DNS to Cloudflares?
Have you restarted the computer after changing the settings or after uninstalling VMware to see if that helps?

DNS changes should not require a restart. Did you look in the event log to see if there are any more verbose errors?

I've managed to fix it by manually doing it in command prompt but I cant do it via the DHCP settings

How did you fix it?
It would be very useful to know that.

As I've said, I used a command in cmd to change the DNS.

Exactly what command?
It might help others in the future.
