    Permanently Disable Windows Defender?

    Since this is a TP. The option to turn off/disable Windows Defender is grayed out. However, you can turn off by:

    https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/5...dows-10-a.html

    1. Open Admin Command Prompt and type: gpedit.msc
    2. Manoeuver to: Computer Configuration->Administrative Templates->Windows Components->Windows Defender
    3. Double click on "Turn Off Windows Defender" and select "Enabled" then click "Apply"

    WARNING: After turn off "Windows Defender", you might not be able to turn it back on. I suggest before trying this, make a backup image so you can restore to the way it was.

    Hi Shailendra,

    There are several reasons that can cause the Make a copy option to be grayed out in Windows Photo Viewer. It can be due to outdated software or corrupted files.

    To help resolve this issue with the Make a copy option being grayed out, you can follow these steps:

    • Right-click the photo you opened in the Windows Photo Viewer.
    • Click Properties.
    • Open the General tab.

      box.
    • Click OK.

    Let us know how it goes.
