Deleting All Firewall Rules

Question:
I have Glasswire installed and many firewall rules applied.

  1. What happens if I open up Windows firewall and manually delete all the firewall rules there? Will they still be showing in Glassware or will they be deleted there also?

  2. If I open Windows Firewall and “Reset to Default”, would this also delete all the applied firewall rules made with Glasswire?

  3. If I do a clean install of Glasswire, I assume all previous rules would be wiped, correct?

I’m just trying to get a better idea of how to delete/reset all rules and the best way to go about doing it… And wondering how Glasswire handles the mentioned ways of doing it.

the GW rules are created directly in Windows’ firewall
so, if you delete all Windows’ firewall rules, GW’s rules will also vanish
