How to block any website on Windows 10 (Easy Method!)


Hi everybody, in this video I’ll be showing
you how to block websites on Windows 10 so that they don’t show up if you open them on
any browser. So you just want to follow onto what I do on the screen. So first of all you
want to open up file explorer, and then you want to click on This PC. Once you’re here
you want to open up disc C://. After that you want to go all the way down to the bottom
and then double click on the Windows file. Once you’ve opened that up you want to keep
scrolling down until you find System32. And you want to open that up. And then once again
keep scrolling down until you find drivers. Again, open it up, and then you want to double
click on the file that says etc. So over here, you can find these files – what you want is
this hosts file over here. You want to right click, and then click on open with. They’re
going to ask you how do you want to open this file. You want to select notepad, and then
click OK. So once you’ve opened the notepad file, you want to scroll all the way to the
bottom and add a new line of code over here. So what you want to add is this number: 127.0.0.1
and then click space. And next to it, you wanna put in the address of whichever website
you’re trying to block. So let’s say you want to block Facebook because it’s taking up all
of your time. So what you wanna write is www.facebook.com. And then you want to go to file and click
Save. And then you can exit out. Now if you open your web browser and then go to Facebook.com,
you can see it says that this site can’t be reached. So let’s say you want to block another
website. Just make your way to this folder again, right click hosts, go to open with,
click on notepad, press OK. Go all the way down to the bottom and then add a new line
of code. Once again you want to put in 127.0.0.1. And next to it you want to put in whichever
website you want to block again. So, let’s say Instagram – www.instagram.com. You wanna
save the file again, exit out, and let’s say you wanna go to instagram.com. And as you
can see, again, you can’t open up the website. So this actually blocks it on all your web
browsers, not just Google Chrome. So let’s say if you go to Facebook again, you can see
that you cannot open it. So if you want to revert the changes you did, and let’s say
you want to open facebook, again go back to that file, and then simply delete whichever
line you wanna remove. So let’s say you want to see facebook again, so remove this line,
and then click save. And now if you wanna go to Facebook, you can simply log in.
