    How do I tell Windows 10 to set the Windows Firewall on at start-up?

    I recently started using Windows 10 on a new laptop, which also has the McAfee antivirus pre-installed. About two minutes into a new session, an alert appears at the bottom right of the screen. If I click on it, a dialog box appears with an option to switch on the Windows Firewall by clicking an option. There are also two other options relating to the McAfee Firewall. I click the Windows Firewall option and then continue the session. If I don't click on the alert, it disappears after a few seconds, so I miss the opportunity of switching on the Windows Firewall.

    Is there an option I can set somewhere in Windows 10 that will automatically set the Windows Firewall on at start-up, rather than having to react to this alert every time?

    I think I'd hunt through the McAfee settings first. It's more than likely what's stopping it from starting all on its own.
