    My Personal Review of Windows Defender Performance on Windows 10 1803


    My Personal Review of Windows Defender is as follows, a little too slow on scans for my tastes, 8-12 hours for one full scan is ridicoulus on both Intel I7 7700 based Desktop and Laptop, Both have SSD boot drives, and hopefully fast enough storage drive, Upgrading storage drive asap here on Desktop with Western Digital Black Drive for more performance


    For now sticks with Avast Free maybe til 1809 Clean install, then maybe gives Defender one more shot


    I'd restore a system image now and retry it possibly, but seems everytime i restore system image end up stuck on Windows 10 Home on the Desktop, guess picks it up from bios key or something, last time i restored image ended up having to clean install second time to get back to Pro edition


    Anyways my personal opinion

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
