I previously used TinyWall to control Windows Firewall as it blocked unnecessary outgoing connections and enabled average users like myself to easily allow needed programs. This was a great little piece of software for average users like myself. TinyWall has not been updated and will not function properly in Windows 10 Home 1803 and I have un-installed it.  I see Windows Firewall Notifier has a version 2.0 beta3 that appears to perform the same functions as TinyWall with a bit more user interaction. There is little info about user experience of this software and I'm wondering if forum members know anything about it, and how it is implemented  -as there is no msi installer. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
