QuickSetDNS 1.02

QuickSetDNS is a compact and portable tool which makes it easy to change the DNS server for any of your network adapters.

Unlike some similar tools, QuickSetDNS only lists a single alternative to your default settings: Google's Public DNS. But this isn't necessarily a big deal, as it's simple enough to add as many other alternatives as you like. For Comodo Secure DNS, say, you'd click File > DNS, type Comodo in the "Name" box, 8.26.56.26,8.20.247.20 in the "IP Addresses" box, click OK, and you're done.

Changing the DNS server itself is simple enough, just a matter of choosing your preferred network adapter, selecting a new server and clicking File > Set Active DNS (or pressing F2). Or, if you need to restore your default settings later, set your system to "Automatic DNS" instead.

Alternatively, if you're a network expert then you can use the program to set your DNS servers from the command line, like QuickSetDNS.exe /SetDNS "8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4" "{F41A4233-02DA-42D6-A97B-A2D12F9FE0CD}"

Version 1.02 added an "Always on top" option (changelog).
