There are several different ways to disable the Windows Defender Real-Time Protection feature in Windows 11 operating system but in this step-by-step guide, we will show how this can be done through the Local Group Policy Editor.
Step 1: Open the Local Group Policy Editor on your computer.
Step 2: When the Group Policy Editor window opens, navigate to the following path:
Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Microsoft Defender Antivirus > Real-time Protection
Step 3: On the right side of the window, double-click on the “Turn off real-time protection” option.
Step 4: Now, select the “Enabled” option to turn off the Real-time Protection on your device.
That’s it. After you have followed all the above-mentioned steps, then the real-time protection for the Microsoft Defender has been disabled on your Windows computer.
