    Windows firewall and ports

    Dear all

    I have some questions regarding Windows Firewall and Ports

    How do I best close Ports in Windows?
    With the Outbound / Indbound firewall rules?

    Deleting a rule is that the same as if is not activated?
    Or does it get activated when the App requests it?

    League of Legends app is neither in Outbound or Indbound rules
    How can I still connect to their servers and play?

    Hearthstone was deactivated in both Inbound and Outbound rules
    I could still connect to it
    How can that be?

    I have the same Firewall profile as this:

    Thank you for replying

    Best regards

    The thing with ports is they can be blocked but can be opened by software on the pc the same with a router if you have plug and prey set software can open ports at will
