Can you direct me to a video which explains the above title as the ones I have seen are not clear?
I much prefer 10 but hope I will acclimate.

The title Protected folders do not explain what you are asking us.

Protected folder is a confusing concept to me. I am not sure how to allow and to remove past items in the log.
Unless I disable protected folders most downloads are sent there for me to judge whether allowed or not.
It seems even if I do mot allow the app still works.

I suppose you are talking about Windows Security (Defender) and not about the Windows system in general ("hidden" folders vs "protected" folders).
Do you know this ? DefenderUI
It should help you to finetune Windows Security.

I do not have anything that looks like your post,sorry. DefenderUI
When you download an app sometimes defender protects its folders. I do not know how to set filters and other features of protected folders. I have WIn 11. If you don't reply it is ok because the whole protected feature is complicated. To me and others I have spoken with. It seems for advanced users.

I think you are talking about Control Folder Access, you can disable it from Windows Security.
