How to scan a file or folder?

when I down load a file or folder, and before I open it, I always scan it with a Malware program by right clicking on the file/folder....Problem is that I have Windows Defender that is not available to me to use to scan for virus' or malware.


How do I make it a right click option? I want Windows Defender to be an option when I right clik on the file/folder and I don't want to have to go directly to and open Windows Defender to do a quick scan every time I down load a file.
I am using Win 8.1.


thanks ahead of time
