Original Title: Open port in the windows 10 firewall?
How do you open a port in the windows 10 firewall?
I tried to search here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/search?query=open%20a%20port%20in%20the%20firewall but this thing returns answers that link you here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/products/windows?os=windows-10 it seems no matter what I click on the answer is https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/products/windows?os=windows-10
THEN I come here try to ask and I get a popup trying to FORCE more useless answers on me.
I clicked on the help in the firewall program and it takes me here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/products/windows?os=windows-10 its like a giant cycle of stupidity.
Sorry if I sound harsh but Microsoft used up all my patients first with the firewall with no help (what if I was off line Microsoft then what) then even more patients trying to SIGN IN to these forums with more security hoops than Hillary's email server.
I Googled for windows 10 firewall help but none of the instructions come close to matching what I am seeing in my firewall.
Last question, with security being a high priority why isn't the firewall INTUITIVE to the point where a user never even needs to click on the "Help" button? I am to the point of just turning the firewall off and leaving it off taking my chances with it open.
The good people at Microsoft, the engineers and software writers REALLY needs to Google (NOT BING) Gufw Firewall then they will understand my current demeanor.
Thanks in advance.
FYI I just picked the top one on the list of "Windows Topics" a moderator who knows this place can move this topic if its in the wrong place none of the choices made any sense to me.
