I want to discontinue use of McAfee (which came with the initial install) of my Windows 10 computer, and turn on Windows Defender. I don't know where to start.

Open the start menu. Select "Control Panel". Select "Programs and Features". Find and select the McAfee program in the list then click "uninstall" at the top of the list.
When it has finished uninstalling Windows Defender will activate itself.
Go back to Control Panel again and select "Security and Maintenance" . In the security drop down list it should say Windows Defender is turned on.
