    How do I disable SmartScreen?


    How do I disable SmartScreen?
    Everything I read about this says,

    Go to the Control Panel.
    Select "Security and Maintenance"
    Select "Change Windows SmartScreen settings"

    Problem is I don't have a "Change Windows SmartScreen settings" in my "Security and Maintenance" window.

  2. How do I disable add ons and how do I know which can be disabled?

    Get to Manage add-ons from the gear icon in the upper right. Once there, be sure to select [Show: All add-ons]

    To determine whether or not an add-on should be disabled research it with your favorite search provider. Since a disabled add-on can be easily re-enabled, there's no significant risk involved in disabling one to see what the result is.

    How do I disable SmartScreen?

    Hi, go to Settings, and in the search box type 'smart'.

    Or just type
    smart

    in Cortana's search box (probably) on the taskbar.
    That should find it.

    Else please post a screenshot of what you see. Thanks.

    (To confirm, running as admin, build 1607, '10 pro, I do have that setting in my control panel)

    Thank you dalchina,
    While preparing my screenshot. I noticed that it had "Change Windows SmartScreen settings"
    It was worded differently and locate in a different location than the tutorial.
