How do i do a quick scan? I don't get the option, just the full scan every time.

I saw it the first time i started McAfee, but I clicked full scan, and it was taking ages, so I cancelled it. Now all I ever get is the full scan. Not button or option to do a quick scan. How do I do that?

Open McAfee click on Antivirus box and in bottom left is an option scan types. Or open Mcafee on left top is option My Protection that links to option Run a scan and  that has options for scan type.

This assumes a PC

I open McAfee, and there is not Antivirus box that I can see anywhere.

Tabs for Home, PC Security, My Privacy, My Info.

None of those tabs has 'antivirus' box.

 

There is also no "My Protection" button, top left.
