How to block websites without any software on the computer it’s pretty easy and tricky. No technical knowledge required to perform this task. You can block websites using the Hosts file and firewall in windows. You can easily do this work because the host file also hides access to a particular URL or website. you just need to make an entry there in the host file.
We can block websites either using host files or with software extension on the
browsers in windows 10. if you have a firewall, you can also do that using it. Let’s see, how to block a website in windows 10.
