How to disable windows 10 defender

I use bitdefender I'm working wondering is having defender antivirus part disable all that's needed or do I need to go into settings? If yes how.

Windows 10 will disable defender as soon as another av is installed.

So it saying that the antivirus part of it is off due to bitdefender does that mean I'm good to go

As I said, Windows will disable defender as soon as another av is installed.
There is nothing you have to yourself.

Hi related to this post I have just had Updated version of windows 10,
I have noticed that defender has been activated.
I have always had avast, and Avast is up and running.
Will Avast (or windows 10) deactivate defender? as I am not sure how to do that on the defender interface.
Thanks.

When you install Avast (or any other third party AV) Defender turns off and is no longer the resident AV.
