Hello drugo:

As a start try:

+R --> Type: firewall.cpl --> Advanced settings

Single left-click the type of rules of interest.

Hello drugo:

Exactly what is it that you can't find please? How far were you able to proceed?

What exactly is the overall end result you wish to accomplish or what issue are you trying to resolve?

Thank you.

Hello drugo:

Can you describe exactly, in post #2's instructions, where you are unable to proceed?

Would you like those instructions to be re-written in a different manner? I will if you need that.

Thank you.

For what it is worth, I don't see where the instructions in post #2 will help someone electronically search thru each firewall rule.

As far as I can see, there is no way to electronically search these rules for a rule that applies to a given app.

Perhaps I'm just not seeing it today.

Hello UNI:

Perhaps we are discussing apples and oranges.

e.g. After opening the Windows Firewall and Advanced Security window, the user may single-click Inbound Rules and sort the leftmost Name column. Manually scroll down to Skype, if present, and scroll to the right to see the status of the various categories displayed.

I hope this is but one of the items drugo wishes to verify.

I thought that the OP wanted to electronically search inside of the rules.

The rules can be named anything. They might not be named after the app of interest.

It is not pretty, but you can right click on Inbound Rules or Outbound Rules in the left most pane and export the list to text. Open/search that text list. It will contain the skype.EXE even if the rule is not named Skype.

I quite agree UNI.

@drugo: Are you able to get to the rules lists now?
