I have changed from W7 to W10 but find that although I am logged in as the administrator, I am unable to save any changes to my hosts file and get the message that I don't have accees/permission and should contact the administrator.
should the Hosts file be made read only ?
Since using XP and then Windows 7 have always set the Hosts file to read only as a security measure.
Is it still advisable to do this on Windows 10?
How can I reset the Hosts file back to the default? pls Is This good?
I can set an alias in the hosts file on a win7 machine and access it just fine but doing the same in Win10 prompts for creds that never work even when entered correctly.
What did win10 change?
hosts file entry:
127.0.0.1 hostname alias...
