  2. Scan schedule for Windows 10?

    Windows Defender regularly scans your PC through the 'Automatic Maintenance' feature which may be setup to run at 2AM every day. You can find your machines setting in the control panel here by searching here:
    Control Panel >System and Security > Security and Maintenance > Automatic Maintenance

    To manually scan your PC, use the Task Scheduler.

    • Search and open Schedule tasks.
    • In the left-hand menu, open the Task Scheduler Library, then select
      Microsoft > Windows > Windows Defender.
    • Select 'Windows Defender Scheduled Scan' and select
      'Run'

    CJ,

    Many thanks for that fantastic response - and thanks for replying so quickly!

    I've now set a scheduled maintenance time via the control panel.

    Kindest Regards,

    Scan schedule for Windows 10?

    Seriously? Use task scheduler? Was much simpler and intuitive to do it in Defender. I hope MS bring the option back to Defender.
