Windows Defender by default doesn’t scan any external removable drives attached to the system or any of the email attachments downloaded. Without any standard antivirus application, this can pose a security threat if left unchecked.

In order to include both of these too for scanning :

1. Open Control Panel > Windows Defender

Accessing Windows Defender

2. Select Tools > Options.

Options in Windows Defender

3. Select Advanced tab in column and enable the check mark next to “Scan removable drives” as well as “Scan e-mail”.

Advanced options in Windows Defender

All done.
