    Win 8.1.1 host file

    Trying to add a line to the host file but can't get it to save. I have Admin privileges in Notepad. I'm missing something, but don't know what?

    I use a simple little .exe program Hosts Toggle to load and edit Hosts file. It will also disable or enable the Hosts file.
