Windows is the most widely used PC operating system in the world. Microsoft recently released its latest operating system, Windows 11, which contains some improved security features.
If you get the feeling that your Windows PC has been infected with malware, or you just want to perform a conventional scan, you can do so by following a few simple steps. The latest Microsoft software for Windows 11 has built-in security feature; Windows Security. This can be used to quickly scan Windows 11 PCs, which can help detect and eliminate malware.
If you search for Windows Defender in the Start menu, you will find the Windows Security option. If you have disabled the search box, you can re-enable it by right-clicking on the taskbar. Then you need to click Search> Show Search Box / Icon.
If you don’t want to enable the search box, you can try another way to access this option. To do this, you can simply go to the “Settings” section and then go to “Privacy and Security” and then to “Windows Security”. This will give you access to a quick summary of the health of your PC. Then you can click on the “Open Windows Security” option to open the software. Read on to find out more.
