Why can't I set a static DHCP

I have recently acquire a raspberry pi and want to make the IP address static.

I logged into my router settings by typing in the devices IP address into Chrome.

In the settings, under home networking, when I try to set the device as static DHCP I get an error message "Warning: Need to disconnect/connect the device or release/renew IP"

I have tried doing what the warning has said , but it does not work for the Raspberry Pi or any device.

Please help.
