Import Windows Firewall rules

I have setup several Windows Firewall rules that I'd like to import. If I can't import them could I disable McAfee Firewall and use Windows Defender Firewall instead but still have McAfee as virus scanner?

Hi @NnyaFarkinBizns 

Even when you disable the McAfee firewall, the McAfee Virus Scan still it works.

Re: Import Windows Firewall rules

I'd like to know, like OP was implying, can Mcafee import Windows Firewall rules?

Also, if I turn off Mcafee Firewall and I turn off the Mcafee Firewall notifications in the settings menu but when I browse the web, my browsers have Mcafee specific notifications insisting that I should turn on the firewall.  If the user does this, they'll break their software communications so I need this browser notification to stop if I have Mcafee Firewall turned off.  How do I do that?
