What Apps should be allowed Public Access to Communicate through Windows 10 Defender/Firewall?

With the new release of Windows 10 (Fall Creators Version?) Win 10 Pro V-1709, OS Build - 16299.98, I'm concerned as to what MS has changed without my knowledge and/or desire. There's a lot of "Apps" that are allowed Public Access by default and I'm not sure which ones are potentially leaving me at risk or exposing things that I would generally NOT want to "Share"...?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Windows Defender (16299.98) does a good job of allow your apps to communicate with the outside world. If it perceives the app is a virus, it will quarantine it.

Defender user EMET security structures to keep out harmful apps.

It is all automatic so nothing to set in the vast majority of cases.

I would be more concerned with which apps I install. Generally, outbound communications are allowed and inbound blocked
