Android Central Question

To Allow / Deny permissions, i go the app info in Settings and can Allow / Deny using slider switch.

However for Screen Recorder app, it shows No Permissions, and when in click on Menu - All Permissions, all the permissions are listed. Effectively I understand that the app has all those permissions and they cannot be Denied.

Q1>> Why is this so ?

Q2>> Why are all the permissions not listed with slider switch ?

Q3>> What to do if i want to Deny permissions for such Apps ?

Details -
OS - Android OREO
Phone - Redmi Note 5 Pro

Welcome to Android Central! Is this a system app, or a 3rd party app you installed? Many system apps will have permissions that are always on which you can't turn off -- presumably, it's because those permissions are necessary for proper usage of a system app. Probably the only thing you can do is Disable the whole app, but that isn't always possible either.
