  2. Click on Advanced Settings located on the left hand side this will open up Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Security program
  3. Click on Inbound Rules located on the left hand side and then from the right hand side inside Actions panel click on New Rule…
  4. Make Sure Program is selected in Rule Type Screen and Click on Next
  5. Now locate the program that you want to block so if you have a short cut of your program on your desktop then Right click on it and select Properties > Shortcut
    and copy Target in our case it is “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\msedge.exe”, now past it in This program path: (without quotes) and click Next
