  2. In the Exclusions section, do one of the following:
    • Click File paths, enter a file path you would like to exclude, then click Add
    • Click URL addresses, enter a URL you would like to exclude, then click Add
  3. Click Apply changes when you are finished

If you have multiple OS types using the same policy, be sure to add the exclusions to this section under the Windows Workstation and/or Windows Server tabs.
