When we use windows 10 the windows defender antivirus is included and we can use this free (no cost).

If i have subscription office 365 for personal, we also can download another windows defender, so i want to know what different between windows defender included on windows 10 installation and windows defender where we download from windows store (which need license)?

Windows 10

    I guess you meant Microsoft Defender.

    Windows Defender is a free antivirus developed by Microsoft that comes pre-installed on all Windows 10 computers.

    Microsoft Defender antivirus is a cross-platform application and is available for various platforms including Windows.

    The Microsoft Defender app is available exclusively with a Microsoft 365 Personal or Family subscription and can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store.
