Since windows XP, windows has a built-in host-based firewall.
A decent firewall where one can allow or block traffic based on executable and/or source/destination/protocol.
Thus, you may not always have access to the MMC (wf.msc) and the console GUI is not always straightforward but rather wizard oriented.
Windows Firewall GUI is a « one window does it all » standalone executable running on windows 7 up to latest windows 10 version.
Probably more important, as the GUI is quite simple and possibly redundant with existing windows functionalities, source code is available (on my github) as well so others may build onto it.
One can :
-view all rules at once
-sort and export to HTML
-delete a rule
-add a rule
-enable/disable a rule
-enable/disable the firewall
-turn on/off logging (dropped packets)
-open and monitor the windows firewall log
-get current profile (domain/private/public)
-get default inbound/outbound action for current profile
-restore local windows firewall defaults
