    Windows Defender Offline


    Question: How to view the result? It is not mentioned in protection history. Where is it logged?

    Microsoft say that it should be.

    Review scan results
    Microsoft Defender Offline scan results will be listed in the Scan history section of the Windows Security app.

    But there's also this...

    Microsoft Defender Offline Scan log files are stored as a MPLog-YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS.log file located in the C:\Windows\Microsoft Antimalware\Support folder.

    Thanks Bree. Found the logs (I did not know I have several)...but they all look Greek to me. Anyway, I did not see any report of malware found.
