Easy To Run Windows Defender From Control Panel
You can get to Windows Defender in Control Panel. You can run a scan. You can check for quarantined files. You can update the definition. It looks and works like Windows Security Essentials.
yes but he wanted the tray icon like mse and that in win8 is not possible
On Windows 8 Start Menu click below the Icons to get:
Click on Apps in lower right blue Filed (or whatever color you had chosen) to get:
move the screen form right to left and Right Click on Windows Defender:
Chose what ever you like to do now.
or just type defender in start
After pin to start it could look like this:
yes but that is the app in start and he wanted on tray, and like I said defender don't have a tray icon on windows 8
Pin to Taskbar and it's in the taskbar at desktop!
taskbar is not tray tray is those icons on bottom right side and defender messages appears on the action center icon ( the flag one)
You're talking about the System Tray. If the use of the Taskbar isn't enough and you don't mind about to use a lot mor resources for to run Defender the whole time, go ahead and run from System Start, which should work. Haven't tested yet and will not also.
And just to tell that as well:
THAT isn't the Tray at all. it's the Action Center Icon!
that is on system tray mate and that was what fantomas wanted to have the defender icon on system tray like MSE ... but like I said defender the system tray icon for defender IS the action center icon ( where the suspicious files messages appear)
pin to start and pin to taskbar is not the same thing has having an icon on system tray like he wanted
lunario is right, i wanted just to add Defender to System Tray (exactly like MSE). I thought some reghack exist to do that.
