Windows – Host File Location

Occasionally, I need to update the windows hosts files, but I seem to have a permanent memory block where the file is located. I have written the location into numerous documents, however, every time I need to verify and or up the host file I need to look up the path. Today, when I went to look it up I discovered that I had not actually posted it to this blog site. So, for future reference, I am adding it now.

Here is the path of the Windows Hosts file, the drive letter may change depending on the drive letter on which the Windows install was performed.
