Windows 10 Laptop, NextDns not working...

We're at a rental unit and I don't have access to the router for configuration.   So far I've been successful at setting up some of my devices (Android/IOS), but I have a Windows 10 Lenovo Laptop that I can't seem to get working with NextDns.

I have the NextDns app installed, configured and enabled.  I also tried to setup the appropriate DNS in the IP4 and IP6.  Settings for the Wifi is showing the NextDNS dns in the IP Settings, but the Properties at the bottom is still showing that the google DNS is being used. 

I have Ccleaner, but I've disabled that, I don't think that I have anything else installed.

I got my wife's Windows 11 laptop working (NextDns app installed) after manually configuring the IP4 & IP6 dns servers.

Could Defender be blocking the change?   I can't seem to find a troubleshooter...
