How do you block websites from being visited?

I would like to block certain websites from being accessed, however, I cannot find the way to do it in the browser. I had to download a program to block a site but it can only block 1 site at a time and on a limited time only.

Note that using an extension is not very reliable and can easily be bypassed by starting in Safe Mode.

Hello BrutalArm, you can use the host file in command line also

the command :

c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

to open the host file use notepad

see useful information to add the sites in the next links :

it is more complicated, indeed.


thank you
