    This has been very useful. I was wondering whether you know of a way of adding it to the + x menu which can also be accessed by right clicking in Windows 8.1?

    I think this would be a very convenient additional menu to have the open up/update Windows Defender options.

    Thanks

    Hello Philiip,

    I'm not sure that it's possible to add cascading menus to the + X menu, but you could use the method in the tutorial below to edit it to add what you like to it.

    Power User Tasks Menu (Win + X) - Edit in Windows 8


    If you edit the .reg file from step 1, the "command" paths for each item will be listed.

    For example, to open Windows Defender: "C:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exe"

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
