HOSTs file download for Windows 10
I'm new to Windows 10 and I want to use a host file as I did in W7. I can't find any Host file in W10.
Secondly (my pc where I have all of my stuff crashed and is "dead" so I don't have access to the link)
I need the link to where I can downlaod the Host file.

First of all, itīs called HOSTS-file.
I have no idea where it is located in W10, but you will probably find it in the usual location.
Do a search...
If you donīt have one, then just create one yourself.
But if you mean downloading the "famous" HOSTS-file from MVPS.org then you will find it here: Blocking Unwanted Connections with a Hosts File
"Special Note: new Windows 10 users ... the MVPS Hosts file installs just fine, no need to make any changes.
Simply follow the instructions for Windows 8.
Donīt you have access to Google on your new computer....?

Thanks. The missing "S" was a typo.

I had a right-click option on Desktop I used to be able to edit hosts with on my crashed pc. You know how to get that one back?
