How to Add “Scan with Windows Defender” to the Context Menu in Windows 8,8.1

Last Updated on November 20, 2016 by Vinay Kharayat

Hey Guys…..

The trick I am going to share will add a “Scan with Windows Defender” option to the context menu that appears when you right-click a folder. It works similarly to the “Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials” option on previous versions of Windows.

1-Download the .zip file provided at last.
2-Extract it and run AddWindowsDefenderToContextMenu.reg file it contains.
3-Thats it.
4-It also contains a file RemoveWindowsDefenderToContextMenu.reg

Note-Do it on your own risk.Although I checked it and its working.
