Existing rules ensure that Desktop APM does not track the name of individual websites you visit. We're going to set up Desktop APM to only track Age of Empires II, so these rules are no longer needed.

Step 6 Click into the top input box and input the character *
Desktop APM: Add rule
Ensure the radio button Ignore is selected, and click Add.

This creates a rule that will ignore all applications.

Step 7 Now we will create an exception rule for Age of Empires II.
Desktop APM: Add rule for Age of Empires II
Click into the top input box and input the text "Age of Empires II".
The text is case sensitive, so ensure it matches exactly as shown.
