Microsoft Windows 10 Build 10049 : Can’t change IP address

I recently updated my Windows to build 10049, and since the update I am unable to change my IP address to a static IP address. The option to change any IP settings is greyed out.

 

Windows 10 IP Settings Grayed out

Properties is greyed out for changing IP Settings

The solution to this is to use the New-NetIPAddress Powershell function to assign a new static IP address

New-NetIPAddress –interfacealias Ethernet –IPAddress 192.168.0.66 -PrefixLength 24 -DefaultGateway 192.168.0.1
