    I am trying to schedule a full scan in Windows Defender using Task Scheduler. I am running Windows 10 Pro, latest update.

    Using the recommended basic task in Task Scheduler “%ProgramFiles%\Windows Defender\MpCmdRun.exe” with the argument -Scan -ScanType 2. I was able to get a scan but the results showed it ran a Quick Scan.

    Has anyone successfully automated Windows Defender to run a full scan on a schedule?
