How do block sites in Windows?

If you want to block access to the site for children or friends with whom you use the same PC, you can do this using regular Windows tools:

  1. Open Notepad as an administrator.
  2. In the upper-left corner, go to “file” and click “Open”.
  3. Find and open the folder “C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc”.
  4. in the lower-right corner, select “ All files (“.”)”.
  5. Open the “hosts” file.
  6. Below all labels with # write “127.0.0.1 site link” with a new line.
  7. after making all the changes, save the file.

To return everything as it was, delete the changes you added in Notepad and save the file.
