How do I turn Windows Defender OFF in Windows 10?

I have Bitdefender installed, and have for some time now, but today Windows Defender has somehow turned itself back on and is running at the same time... How do I turn Windows Defender back OFF?

Move back to Windows 7, All Microsoft wants to do is look @ your information, and they don't want you to figure out how to turn MSE (Defender) off. Well, I will tell you. Open Settings, Click on Update & Security, Click on Windows Defender, and on the left right side, turn off All off all of the Virtual On/Off switch sliders (like the image below:) that say "ON".
