Where has it gone
Need to 127.0.0.0 some sites :colbert:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (no extension)
Remember to run notepad or editor with Admin rights to edit the file.
Thanks. Searched using the extension
"hosts" file has never had an extension.
Depending on the OS used:whiste:
I've never seen a system where the hosts file had an extension...
My Win 95, 98, 2K, and XP all have a hosts.ini sitting in that directory.
Do you guys keep the extension viewing turned off?
Use Google for a search on hosts.ini - multiple references show up for Vista and older systems.
I don't have a Win9X machine handy to check, but AFAIK it's never had an extension. For the same reason that it's under an "etc" directory. It was taken directly from unix which kept the file in /etc, e.g. /etc/hosts. Most of the Google search results I see are posts from people that don't know any better.
That's because you're more specialer than the rest of us.
I dont know why you have a .ini..... Im on 98se and I just have 2 files named "hosts" NO EXTENTION... (One is called hosts.2 (in the system directory))
same here, no extension and as far as I remember, never had one either. Ini files will open by default with notepad, anytime I have modded the hosts file it required me to select notepad to open it.
Yep, HOSTS.INI doesn't exist. Just "hosts" does. (In drivers/etc)
Count me in the group that has never seen the hosts file have any sort of extension.
Anyone else? Maybe OP should make a poll just to be sure.
We get it guys. Necro thread. Let it die.
Does this help?
