    window defender icon


    MSFT in its wisdom updated my computer today, without telling me what was going on. In the process, the windows defender icon disappeared off the taskbar. I understand that this is the default setting. Well, I want it back. Hitting the alt key to get windows tools menu has no effect. I can't see anything in the defender menus to get the icon back. Couple of questions: How do I get it back? Why does MSFT presume to think I don't want it, when I had it before? And, what about ALT key?

    :)
