  2. scanned documents

    Hello,

    By default, scans are saved in a Scans folder inside the Pictures. Here are the steps on how to get there:

    • Press Windows and type pictures
    • Click Pictures and double-click the Scans folder.

    Furthermore, we suggest that you repair your Word application by following the steps on this

    .

    Let us know how that turned out for you.

    Defender not Running Regular Scan


    I believe you are showing the scan that is part of Automatic Maintenance. For that mine is already set to System by default. Although I do not have anything listed for author. If the scan is running for you I think that is because it is the Automatic Maintenance scan.

    Defender not Running Regular Scan


    I've never understood the need some people feel to set up a scheduled task to run a Defender scan. For the past year the automatic maintenance has run Defender scans for me.

    That is, until the Anniversary Upgrade - it broke something and Defender never ran another scan. It finally alerted me that a scan was long overdue. I followed the suggestion on another thread...
    Windows Defender No Longer Performs AutoScan
    ...and the automatic maintenance scans are back to running regularly again.
