    Windows Defender: Can I Add to System Tray?

    Hello everyone. I just installed the Enterprise edition that is good for 90 days. My initial impression is it's a vast improvement over the previous test copies.

    Okay, here's my question: Is it possible in any way to add a system tray icon for Windows Defender?

    If not, then can I add it to my Quick Launch bar, which I enabled?

    Thank you! Jd

    Try hitting the start button, search windows defender, once the icon pops up, drag it to your desktop and then drag it to the tray. For some reason it doesn't go from the programs list on the start menu to the tray.
