In which order do you enable RDP and Firewall openings?

Yesterday I noticed something.

The number of rules concerning RDP in the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security mmc differs. If you enable RDP before enabling the firewall rules, you will get two set rules per type, one for Public profile and one for Private/Domain profile. But If you enable the RDP rules when they say All and then enable RDP they one rule. Pictures inside blog.

Prior to enabling RDP Firewall exception:

FW_RDP

What it looks like if you enable RDP prior to enabling the firewall exceptions
