How to get the windows defender icon on the taskbar notification area?

Sometimes is asked, how to get the windows defender icon on the taskbar notification area, like it is, if to use some other antivirus software.
Of course, this is not necessary, but still is good to see whether the protection works or not.
If you want to put yourself into this icon, you will be just enough to do a lot of thinking to work, but do not worry, use this little tool.
It has been tested and verified. Completely safe and does its job very well.
VirusTotal control - absolutely clean.
Personally tested and dare to suggest.
Works on both - on Windows 8 and 8.1 well.

Simple yet effective.

You can also get On-Screen Keyboard icon on the taskbar notification area like this:

Control Panel\Ease of Access\Ease of Access Center\Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard

Just check the box and hit Apply and OK, it should appear after computer restart.

You dont need to use a tool for something that comes in the box. Right click on the taskbar click properties look under notification area click on customize uncheck always show icons and notifications on taskbar and viola click on which one you want to hide or show and do what you want with it. You can also click on system icons and display action center or hide action center (replacement for security center that service is pointless and uses up resources and so does action center) and do what you want with other system icons to..

Sorry but you can't say it uses up ressources since the whole group of launched services which the Security Center belongs to takes not more than 15 Mo of RAM. And if you really need those 15 Mo of RAM, it will be swapped otherwise.

Modern OSes don't lack RAM management anymore.

Swapped using virtual memory which uses hard drive space which can slow things down depending on which hard drive your using resource junkies like me and others want all the memory they can get including only fifteen MB's worth. You dont need a service telling you if your security software is disabled you can find that out for yourself look in the system tray if the icon isnt present and you didnt disable it through msconfig or autoruns its not running and needs to be looked at..
