I use Windows Defender with my Windows 11 PC and recently turned on the 'controlled folder access' security option. All worked fine except the HTML editor won't run, instead posting a message on how to set Windows to allow the Coffeecup editor to be exempt from restrictions. That page is at … er-access/ I followed instructions exactly and my PC now shows that coffee.exe is allowed to run - but it doesn't. I am seeking advice on how to continue using controlled folder access and also use the HTML editor. All tips are welcome. Thank you.

Hi David,
Is the HTML Editor set to run as Admin?
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

This is my personal site used for testing and as an easy way to share photos.(RLM imported to RSD)
