Editing hosts file on Windows 7

njalk 27/03/2012

By default, you’re not allowed to edit the hosts file (c:\windows\system32\etc\drivers\hosts) on Windows 7. It will give you an error message telling you you are not permitted to perform this action when you try to save the file after making changes. To make changes, click the startmenu, search for notepad (or notepad++ as I’m using here), and select Run as administrator. This will give you the permissions you need to save the file.

 

Run as administrator
