Windows 10: Windows Defender Task Scheduler Action Arguments Solved

    Windows Defender Task Scheduler Action Arguments

    I've seen 2 ways to add the full scan argument to MpCmdRun.exe.
    The first is "-Scan -ScanType 2" (without the quotes).
    The second is "-Scan -ScheduleJob -ScanType 2" (without the quotes).
    I can't seem to find anything on the -ScheduleJob parameter.
    Can someone tell me about the -ScheduleJob parameter?
    Also, which of the two arguments is correct?

    The correct one would I suppose be without -ScheduleJob parameter as it is undocumented, not in help for the .exe and Microsoft will not (since 2010) say what it means except it is for "internal use". ScheduleJob, WinTask, RestrictPrivilegesScan command line parameters - Microsoft Community

    I tried both - they did the same as far as I could tell from command line. I'd leave the one in task scheduler as it is though...
