    Microsoft Defender and keyloggers, is it effective?


    I tried searching online and get various opinions, but would like to get new answers as of 2021. My laptop runs W10 pro.
    So, can I trust Defender to protect me from keyloggers? I also use the on screen keyboard, but I'm not sure if the Windows keyboard is that effective. Thank you for your help. Ed

    :)
