    Windows Defender Updates?

    I have my Windows 10 Updates set to Notify Download and Notify to Install from Group Policy.
    But can I make the Windows Defender updates or definition updates to install automatically without changing the Windows 10 update settings above?

    Those Windows Defender update notifications are somewhat annoying.

    Mine I get through New Notifications then all I do is either update it or do a scan.
    That is the way I like it, also once it has scan it does notify me that it has finished
