    Question Windows 10 Defender - Tray Icon.

    Thank you. If this problem was solved elsewhere please let me have the link, thx. The problem I'm having with the Defender icon is that's not appearing in the tray/hidden icons area on my desktop. I've searched through many settings, sources and links but can't get this icon to appear. The is loaded and functioning properly. Thanks for any info in advance.

    I have Windows 7, neither MSE or WD ever appeared in the lower right hand corner notifications box. I did get them to Pin To Taskbar.

    To display the Windows Defender icon in the Windows notification area (system tray), go to Tools and select Options under the Settings section.
    Scroll down the Options page, at the section of “Real-time protection options”, there is an option “Choose when the Windows Defender icon appears in the notification area“.

    I hope this helps!
