Windows 7: WIndows Advanced Firewall Can It inform me of outgoing?

WIndows Advanced Firewall Can It inform me of outgoing?

I just realized the firewall software is installed on Windows 7 is a vast improvement on the old XP day's! I was looking to use comdo or zone alarm however it looks like everything I would use is included in this built in firewall.

However I would like to know if anyone can tell me a way to have the firewall software PROMPT me each time any application tries to connect outside of my PC?

So I can set a rule and say yes allow this or deny this?

I heard of this, Windows 7 firewall control. I'm not sure whether you can do this without using a 3rd-party program. May be useful for promting you each time a (new) application wants to connect to the internet.
