I can only scan, with cmd as administrator (cytool scan start) , in the GUI I can't even do it as administrator:

Dear @tlmarques , 


Hope you are doing well, and thank you for reaching out to our Live Community. From the above query I believe that you are trying to see how to configure the end users to initiate a full scan from the Cortex XDR interface locally on endpoint. 


Please note that a full scan can only be initiated from Cortex XDR portal by navigating to Incident Response → Response → Action Center


Please find the document provided below for further details, thank you:


And for the configuration you have provided in the second screenshot, this configuration is used to allow the end user to initiate a right click scan on a file or folder as seen in the screenshot provided below, thank you: 



If you feel this has answered your query, please let us know by clicking on "mark this as a Solution". Thank you.

we've that configuration enabled....the problem is the agent...i open a case with support and we found the problem.

For future, if someone have the same problem, check that:

OS version:
In the case of Windows 11, it will show clicking the “Show More Options” in the context menu.

This is a registry key related to “Show More Options” in the context menu.
Please check if they are in the registry key.
- HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Cortex.XDR.Scan
- HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{44303AF8-6F09-4803-8639-9247339BE42D}
- HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Cortex.XDR.Scan
- HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Cortex.XDR.Scan

If registry keys are missing, please re-install the agent.

Best regards
Tiago Marques
