    Put an 'allow-all' policy as the top-most policy? As in 'from any (interface), to any, src all, dst all, service ALL, action ACCEPT'.
    will still be routing though.

    I would not do that, if it's one application that place a rule for just that. src host with any services. In fact you should use the diag debug flow and possible diag sniffer packet and actually trouble with diagnostics and traces on what is and is not happening.

    I suppose the Windows default Firewall will jump on once I disable my custom firewall. Do I need to follow these steps after that? Kindly guide.

    of course @emnoc is 100% right, and thanks for calling attention to the implications.
    This is BAD BAD practice.
    Your question was about a quick fix for testing, and I did not mean or recommend to use it for longer than a couple of minutes.
    Besides, a FGT is waay too expensive as a replacement for a wire.

    Your best course of action would be to create a policy from that one device to all with service any and place it at the top. Everything else in the organization will not be affected and only that one application (or device rather) will have unlimited internet access.

    Placing an all-all policy at the top will allow everything in the organization unlimited Internet access. The Windoze firewall is useless as it it primarily for inbound traffic, not for outbound as the Fortinet is.

    Windows Firewall will not pick up anything, be careful.
