On my Windows 10 PC, no browser or app can reach 127.0.0.1. This is true even with the Firewall turned off. Firefox says "Unable to Connect" Plex says "Timeout connecting to server 127.0.0.1" Edge says "Hmm, we can't reach this page" This is a new PC, so as far as I know it has never been possible to do this.

It is a bottomless pit into which any data sent to it disappears forever. A data black hole.

Not just Windows 10. Please enlighten us as to why you were trying to go to 127.0.0.1 (maybe someone was pranking you?)

I think johntrasler would have more luck using a command window to ping his network card (if no local web server has been set up on that pc). More indepth info click here
