Is there a way to automatically whitelist all Mircosoft Store Apps without the need to mess with the access permissions of
Program Files > WindowsApps folder?
Of course you can add every single
.exe file to the whitelist, but for that one has to mess around with the access permissions of the above mentioned folder. Which looks a bit like that:
I am able to get access to that folder, but I'm not comfortable to do so. Should I gain access and
add those (EDIT: UWP apps don't possess
.exe files to the whitelist
.exe files as pointed out by Ramhound.) that way?
EDIT: So my original question is answered, because it just doesn't make sense to whitelist the
Program Files > WindowsApps folder with a wildcard of some sort. This raises the question: How can I still use Windows Defender Controlled Access while excluding all UWP apps?
