    Default 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.

    Any help?

    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...

    Download ???
    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.

    Thanks.
    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?
