    Host File in Win10?


    After searching the internet, youtube and the forums I've not found the correct method for locating the host file in Win10. I did go through the typical Windows way, but I've not been able to locate the file in and of itself.

    :)

    It's in the same spot as previous operating systems.

    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

    Thanks Deep, for some reason when I tried it prior to this post the etc folder was empty. I thought perhaps I'd have to select show hidden files and folders, but now the etc folder is showing the host file, although its a 2009 file.
