    How can I stop Windows Defender definitions update notifications?

    They happen every day and I always get this slide in toast notification. The updates are like 50kb and are done in .5 of a second, I don't need to know about it

    I think it's because I disabled auto update because I'd heard of Windows 10 handling that in an incredibly aggressive way, but is there some middle ground where Windows Defender can auto update and the actual important updates manually notify me for download?

    Sorry, searched but couldnt find anything

    Hello, did you solve this?
    I just noted your post while researching this for someone, and happened to come across this:
    The Ultimate Windows Tweaker (free) has an option to disable Toast notifications, but that's all, not just Defender.
    Under the Modern UI tab.
