Note: it is applicable to Win 10.

RE : Malwarebytes
Open Malwarebytes > at the top, click Settings > make sure you are on General Settings tab > right side, put a dot at " Explorer context menu entry - Yes".
That's it.

RE : scan with windows defender.
There is a catch in this method published by howtogeek.
It will work on any folder but not on individual files. What I mean is, if you right click at a folder, you will see Scan with WD, but if you right click at a file, the option is not listed. Don't know why.
