How do I get Windows Defender to notify and let me decide what action to take before removing the 'so-called' potential threat?

Just notice that it removes files without getting my permission. That's bossy.

OS: Windows 10 Home.

Used to be able to do it but not now.

I can't see a setting to enable notification only without taking any action. You can always look at what's quarantined under History, where there will be an option to restore.

You can make 'exceptions' for files that you wish to keep. I agree that you should have the choice to go automatic or manual. They should have kept the 'Security Essentials' GUI.
