today i was testing a website and i have a virtual host on my laptop and i wanted to test it to see if it would work. but to make it work i need to update my hosts file to point to the correct ip address i had on my virtual server. after searching my folders, i finally was able to find it.

so incase anyone also is looking for the hosts file in windows, i will show you where is the location. the way i had to find it is by using the search function in windows, but that really took a while to locate, so maybe if i post the path where of the folder where the hosts files is located, maybe you wont have to waste your time.


hope that helps

NOTE: this also works for windows 7
