    Windows Defender Security Center also includes an area that surfaces information about the health and performance of your computer. To view your PC health and performance report, do the following:

    1. Open Windows Defender Security Center.
    2. Click on Device performance & health.

    The report includes a status for Windows Update, storage, device driver, and battery. If action needs to be taken, you'll see an alert with a recommendation on how to remedy the issue (Windows Central, n.d.).
