"why this feather is disable in windows 10"
Maybe it is something you have installed that is blocking it.

If you are not getting the pop up, it will be in the Windows System event log.

Two computers can't have the same IP address, so change one of them.

That is why most machines on a network should not be fixed IP addresses, only those who need them. Also the fixed IP addresses need to be outside the exact range of the available ones so that they cannot be assigned to other machines.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Dear,
i am talking about the issue in windows 10. In windows xp based environment, if admin by mistake assign a static ip to another machine that is already in use, then windows xp show us IP Conflict error message. but in windows 10, if admin assign same ip to more then one machine by mistake, then Windows 10 did not show any error of ip conflict.

human error is possible...

Human error is always possible.
W10 may not test for it. The other machine may not have been active at the time it was assigned.
The Admin is responsible for making sure that the IP address is not in use.
Routers, smart switches, servers and other network core components need fixed IP addresses.
Network printers may need fixed IP addresses.
Computers that have special needs may have a need for a fixed IP address.
ALL other computers should have their IP addresses assigned automatically by the network.
All fixed IP addresses need to be outside of the parameters of the network assigned IP range.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

My understanding is that Windows 10 does do duplicate IP address detection. It has been a standard feature for a long time. But there are conditions where it will fail. Such as the other computer is powered down, the interface has been disabled, or the computer has been disconnected from the network. There nay be others. You should not rely on the error.

Generally you should avoid using static IP addresses and instead have them assigned by the routers DHCP. If the computer really does need a fixed IP address it can usually be assigned by DHCP reservation based on the computers MAC address. Most routers can do this. If you really need to assign a static IP it should be outside the DHCP range.
