    Controlled folder access Problem

    I want to use ( Controlled folder access ) for my custom folders like system 32,
    but want to remove the default folders like the desktop folder .
    Found in :
    windows defender > windows defender security center > virus & threat protection >
    virus & threat protection settings > Controlled folder access :

    Sometimes I cant save or edit things at the desktop with Controlled folder access On.
    Yet if turned Off ; then I cant protect my custom folders.

    Hows protecting the desktop more important than system 32 ?

    Asking for advice to get around this by any means, to delete the default list, so only my custom folders remain in the control access list.
