Permissions Issues with etc/hosts

I’m trying to start my site but I don’t understand why local isn’t prompting UAC. I’ve reinstalled it, disabled my firewall, changed permissions to full control and still nothing happens. I’m using Windows 10 and Local v5.4.1.

I’m running the same and not experiencing this problem. Are you seeing UAC prompts for other applications? It may be a problem with UAC and not Local.

Is the account you are using a standard windows account or an admin account?

Sorry for such a late reply. I am not seeing a UAC popup whenever i click fix it. This is what I see

Hmmm. You may have UAC turned off, in which case this article explains how to turn it on: https://articulate.com/support/article/how-to-turn-user-account-control-on-or-off-in-windows-10

I know I have UAC turned on because I use it for all programs on my computer. It’s the default setting on Windows.
