Editors' Review

+
This single-function tool opens your Windows Hosts file for editing, but offers little and crashes during saves. Win Hosts File Editor's bare-bones interface mimics Notepad with a single function: save. The Hosts file associates URLs with specific IP addresses. Many users use it to block select URLs from opening. With a basic context menu of Cut, Copy, Paste, and Select All, editing is similar to Notepad. To edit the Hosts file, this executable needs five times the memory required by Notepad. The application's sole advantage is a text line that alerts the user that the Hosts file has been edited. Our tests found the utility often crashed when saving the Hosts file. We can't see how this program offers anything over a shortcut to the Hosts file. Though it's simple enough for all user levels, this freeware brings nothing beneficial to the table.
