    Windows Defender - Quick Scan

    Windows defender no longer offers a quick scan option.

    My options are:

    • Scan
    • Advanced Scan
    • Full Scan
    • Custom Scan
    • Windows Defender Offline scan
    Whichever option I check, the scan will need to run for hours to complete.

    Is a quick scan available?

    How do I restore this feature?

    Quick Scan?

    I firmly believe that this is an error. Add this to the 1809 bug list.
    Try forcing another Quick Scan and post back.

    Thanks. *Smile

    Turn off Quick scan needed warning

    Thank you for getting back to us.

    If you do not want Windows Defender to alert you about quick scans, you can delete the tasks that command the program to run scans. Refer to the steps below:

    • Click on Start.
    • Type Task Scheduler then press Enter.
    • In the left pane, expand Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft
      > Windows.
    • Select the Windows Defender folder. It will display the tasks that are currently added on the system.
    • Choose the task you want to remove then click on Delete Folder under the
      Actions pane.
    • Restart your computer once the changes have been applied for the system to follow the new rules.

    Come back if you need more help.
