    HELP: GUI prevents me from disabling rule

    I have some firewall rules that I try to (want to) disable with the 'Windows Firewall with Advanced Security' GUI. But when I select the rule and try to disable it, I am presented with a dialog box that says:
    One or more rules in the current selection contains a property not supported through this interface.

    [Name of firewall rule]

    If you continue, these properties will be overwritten. Do you want to continue?
    This means that if I just want to disable the rule for a while and enable it later, it wont be the same rule anymore.

    How do I disable/enable or block/unblock a rule AND preserve all other properties of said rule?
