how to allow a program through firewall (windows 10) | windows

Windows Defender can scan and monitor almost all the folders in Windows 10. In case you have a folder that may have files that could send an alarm to Windows Security, then it is best to Add an exclusion to Windows Security. It is fine to do that if you are sure that the contents of the folder are safe and Windows Defender is only throwing out false-positive warnings. That way, it will not scan those folders in the future. Again, there are some Windows files and folders you may exclude from Antivirus scans – and you may want to do that to save your scan time.
