Add Windows Defender To Control Panel

Windows Defender, Is the default antivirus application that's built-In and shipped with all Windows 10 Editions, such as Home, Pro, Enterprise and Education. In my experience, It has significantly Improved over the years with It's overall detection & removal of malicious content. In some Windows 10 releases however, the feature Is missing In Control Panel, hence cannot be accessed via that gateway. Wouldn't It be nice to have It back there again? Well, I'll show you how It's done with a few clicks of the mouse.

To restore the Windows Defender Icon In Control Panel, I will use a neat little Registry file that I've discovered during my travels on the net. As opposed to editing the Windows Registry manually (which not too many users are comfortable In doing so), this tweak Is achieved by simply clicking the file a couple of times.

As said above, not all Windows 10 releases have the Windows Defender Icon located In Control Panel. If that's the case with yourself, then this guide will serve you well. I have provided the download links to the Registry file, at the end of this article. So without further delay, let's rip Into this tutorial.

Step One:
Once you've downloaded the file, extract It's contents to a directory of your choice. You will see a Registry file named "Add Windows Defender", so double-click It. A window will open, asking whether you wish to add the contents to the Registry. Click "Yes".

Step Two:
A message will now be displayed, confirming that the entries have been successfully added to the Registry, so click "OK" to finalize the process.

Step Three:
Here's a snippet of the Control Panel settings In my Windows 10 operating system. As you can see, the Windows Defender Icon Is missing.

Step Four:
And this Is the result after applying the tweak. Windows Defender Is now accessible via Control Panel.

Last Step:
To reverse the change, execute the file named "Remove Windows Defender", and click OK to finish.

Final Thoughts:
The Windows Registry Is a critical part of the operating system, and any Incorrect changes can cause significant system Instability and/or loss of functionality. This tutorial Is designed for those who either lack In confidence, or do not have the knowledge to apply changes accordingly.

Use any of the links below to download the aforementioned Registry files, and do remember to extract them from the archive to a directory of your choice.
