    Windows Defender Advanced Scan Shortcut


    If I access Windows Defender from the system tray icon and try to run an advanced scan, it will not run. Nothing happens. I don't know why. I've searched for answers but nothing works. Quick Scan is ok.

    So I found these handy shortcuts for Windows Defender Full scans, but I'm wondering if they can be refined to just do an advanced scan of only my C:\ OS partition.
