    Hi Jamos,

    Hope all is well!

    A simple way to do this would be bring up notepad application:

    Type in:
    Ipconfig /flushdns

    Then go File > save as > drop "Save as type" to "all Files"

    then in filename type for example "Flushdns.bat"

    You just need to make sure it runs as a BAT file.

    If you want to stop the cmd window from disappearing after the command has ran you can use this:

    Ipconfig /flushdns

    An example of this:

    Click image for larger version

    then running the BAT file:

    Click image for larger version

    If you want it to be a PowerShell script then you can run use ".ps1" file extension.

    Hope that helps!
