    How to Add Windows Security to Control Panel in Windows 10


    Windows 10 includes Windows Security, which provides the latest antivirus protection with Microsoft Defender Antivirus. Your device will be actively protected from the moment you start Windows 10. Windows Security continually scans for malware (malicious software), viruses, and security threats. In addition to this real-time protection, updates are downloaded automatically to help keep your device safe and protect it from threats.

    This tutorial will show you how to add Windows Security to the Control Panel for all users in Windows 10.

    You must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove Windows Security in the Control Panel.



    EXAMPLE: Windows Security in Control Panel (icons view) and Control Panel (category view)
