Make Exceptions for Programs in Windows Firewall
Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Eng
Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to make exceptions for programs in Firewall on a Windows 8 computer.
The first thing that we need to do is access the Firewall, which is in the Control Panel. To go to the Control Panel, we need to right-click in the lower left-hand corner of the screen and click "Control Panel".
Once there, we need to click "System and Security".
Then, click "Windows Firewall".
If the Firewall is on, we need to click "Allow an app or feature through Windows Firewall" on the left side of the window.
From here, we need to click "Change Settings". Now we can change the settings for particular programs. For example, for "Age of Empire II, the exception is made for the "Private" network, but not the "Public" network.
To make exceptions for both networks, we need to check both of them.
If we don't want to make exceptions for a program, we need to uncheck both of them. For example, we'll uncheck both for "CheckPoint VPN".
We can now close this window.
This concludes the tutorial on how to make exceptions for programs in Firewall on a Windows 8 computer. Thank you for watching VisiHow. If you have any other comments or questions, please leave them in the comment section below.
