Controlled folder access is not enabled by default. To turn it on, open the Windows Defender Security Center and go to Virus & threat protection > Virus & threat protection settings. First, make sure that you toggle on Real-time protection at the top. Next, scroll down and toggle on Controlled folder access.

Controlled folder access locks down certain folders to prevent unwanted changes, including nefarious encryption by a ransomware attack. It allows access to these protected folders only by authorized apps
