Hi , Does Cortex XDR have a Quick Scan feature?

Cortex XDR does not have a 'Quick Scan' feature as it operates different than legacy antivirus software.
It does however offer custom scans (like specific files or folders) for Windows machines, assuming you are running Cortex XDR agent 7.1 or later.
You can find more information about the scan types available here and here.
Please feel free to ask if you need any additional assistance,

In summary, above there are references to the following Cortex XDR scan functions:
