5-Save the file.

  • Sometimes you can’t overwrite the host file when saving, follow these steps:
  1. Save the host file after editing it on any location you know on you PC
  2. From Windows Explorer Open Tools –> Folder Options –> View then Uncheck the “Hide extensions for known file types”.
  3. remove any additional extensions added to the file that you have created e.g. hosts.txt –> hosts remove the .txt by renaming the file.
  4. copy your host file from the location you know and replace the file in the C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc folder.
  5. Say ByeBye Facebook

Share it if you believe that it’s important.
