SPANISH: Hola mis amigos, recientemente el equipo escargot activo las funciones como el buscador en las ventanas y las pestañas, si no te gustan estas funciones como a mi y deseas eliminarlas sigue mi tutorial :slight_smile:

xap

1º GO TO c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\ and select the file ‘hosts’ and click in properties

2º GO TO Segurity>Edit>Tab Users>Full Control and Apply

3º OPEN hosts with Notepad/Bloc de Notas and add: 127.0.0.1 escargot.log1p.xyz

4º SAVE and close and reopen msn program :smile:

To disable the tabs, just go to the WLM settings :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

Yes but search button does not disappear :frowning: :wink:


#4

Actually did not work even after restarting WLM


#5

You do realize redirecting “escargot.log1p.xyz” to localhost will also result in the Escargot site being unreachable, right? :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

Close program process, not your sesion


#7

No, the rest of the escargot servers are still working smoothly :slight_smile:


#8

That’s what I did.


#9

:thinking: Then check that you saved the hosts file well

Also try close and open windows sesion


#10

I already did this.


#11

I meant the site itself. The site’s located at “escargot.log1p.xyz”, and the configuration is also located at “escargot.log1p.xyz”, so both the configuration and the site will be knocked out.


#12

Right, maybe escargot can make a fix disabling this feature from the program

Currently it is the only way that has worked for me that’s why I share it
