I want to edit my hosts-file (W10), but I am not allowed. When I check the perimissions of the file I have Full Control, but nevertheless I cannot save any changes. According to the User Accounts I am administrator but when I right click on the Command Prompt or the Power shell, to enter as an administrator, nothing happens.
