    Windows firewall does not update rules


    I cannot understand why the internetaccess to Microsoft edge is still granted, when i have deleted firewall rules and ruled out "Block all outgoing by default"

    Ok, is this because home edition does not have the system Access? What is the solution to this?

    Windows Firewall is dumb. It is better to use third party GUI to control it, like Firewall Software by GlassWire.

    In the free version, you can block software after it has been detected by clicking on the fire icon next to it.
