    Windows 10 version 1703 Defender

    Since the last update on 12 Apr 2017 (Creators update) I can't find out how to manually scan my computer with Defender. (interface has completely changed)
    The update went flawless and in the taskbar I can see the Defender icon.
    Opening that icon, Defender says that "my device is being protected".
    Is it still possible to scan my computer manually with Defender and how should I proceed?
    thank you, gabriŽl
