    Windows Firewall - "allowed apps and features"


    Is there a description of all the entries in Windows 10 Firewall - "allowed apps and features" listed somewhere? "Details" are not available for many or not helpful

    Right Click Button Start button
    Then Control Panel
    Then Scroll to Windows Firewall
    Then click Allow an app or features through Windows Firewall
    That is where you want to look
    You will find all the entries listed there

    Thanks for the reply - my issue is there are several entries in the Windows 10 Firewall that I am not familiar with - I just upgraded from Windows 7. Some examples...

    World Wide Web (HTTP Trafic-in)
    World Wide Web (HTTPS Trafic-in)
    Message Queuing Inbound/outbound
    Dial protocol server
    Distributed Transaction Coordinator
    LINE
    windows_ie_ac_001
    AllJoyn Router

    I have not been able to find much info on these

    Not too sure but 2 are how much sites you visit on the web
    One is your Router so you can connect to the internet
    One is how many e-mail you have waiting to be read (I believe anyway)
    But some one else may come along and explain in more detail.
    If all ok I would not worry to much about them

    Thanks - I've disabled all with no issues - Alljoyn Router I believe is for connecting other devices to your PC
