  2. Microsoft has implemented a new technology in Windows 10 that allows Windows Defender to work closely with user account control (UAC) requirements.
  3. Windows 10 introduces a new secure event tracking for Windows, which is a security application that runs as a protected process that can consume Windows Defender

There is no separate option in File context menus to scan downloaded files. If you are using a third-party antivirus program, you can right-click a downloaded file and scan it for viruses. This option is not available if you are not using Windows Defender only. You can also add Windows Defender manually to the context menu or use our free Ultimate Windows Tweaker software.
