    Windows Defender Firewall not letting me change settings/add apps


    Hi I am currently trying to allow a program to my firewall exceptions, but the button to add app is greyed out, I have tried to click on the change settings button, and that then goes from white to grey and nothing happens.

    I am the only user on the PC, and an administrator profile.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    :)

    Firewall (AVG firewall)l blocks modern (not desktop) app TouchVPN, how to make an exception in the firewall settings for the apps from windows store?

    App is installed, firewall blocks internet access for this app.

    It is easy to add desktop apps to exception list in firewall settings, but how can I do this with modern apps

    from store (have no access to exe files and even folders)

    If I change AVG firewall to Windows firewall how can I allow modern apps internet access?
