    Windows Security Dashboard issue: "You'll need a new app to open this windowsdefender link"


    As described above, if I click "Open Windows Security" in Settings, I get a prompt which says that I'll need a new app. The same happens if I click on any Protection areas.I checked several discussions about this and I tried many solutions, but none of them worked... I would appreciate any suggestion to fix this.Further informations: - I am on the latest Insider build 21370.1- The services Microsoft Defender and Security Center are correctly running- I can't find Windows Defender app not even searching from the taskbar- I have an "actions recommended" notification for Virus Protection, but o

  2. Windows Security error message "You'll need a new app to open this windowsdefender link"

    Hello,

    I've just gotten a brand new Acer laptop running Windows 10 Home (OS Build 18362.267), and I'm getting the error message "You'll need a new app to open this windowsdefender link" when I try to click on any options in the Windows Security page in Settings
    (Open Windows Security, Virus & threat protection, Account protection, etc.). It gives me the option to look for an app in the Microsoft Store, but there's no app listed when I do that.

    Any idea how to fix this?

    Windows Security Dashboard issue: "You'll need a new app to open this windowsdefender link"

    Windows Security "You'll need a new app to open this windowsdefender"

    Like the subject line reads, when I try to open anything in the "Windows Security" page in Settings, it prompts me to open it with a new app and the only thing available is the Microsoft Store. I click "Virus & threat protection," and the prompt comes up
    with "You'll need a new app to open this windowsdefender" and only allows me to choose "Look for an app in the Microsoft Store." The same prompt appears if I try to click any other menu item in Windows Security.

    This has been happening since I purchased this computer a couple of months ago. Everything is up to date. Picture below:
