Where Is The Location Of Windows Hosts File In My Computer

this is the location path of the hosts file in windows xp where you can find the hosts file in the windows folders name
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.

C:\\Windows\\System32\\drivers\\etc\\hosts

hope that helps

NOTE: this also works for windows 7
