    I spoke too soon. Some Microsoft apps are now being blocked from making changes. It would be nice to know what's whitelisted by default.

    HI

    I found this new function of Windows 10 to be yet another pain in the ass, Windows 10 really is f-in annoying. I've turned off 'Controlled Folder Access' as it just creates problems and I cannot find the program it has blocked to change the settings.
    Microsoft have really shot themselves in the foot with Windows 10 and given Apple a real boost by creating it.

    You can check for exact program (.exe or .dll) involved, if you go to event viewer and check for Event Nr. 1123 (you can also set custom views to find them with one click).
