Protection history messages do not display the full file path, eg they will say that WD blocked "setup.exe", which is not very informative as there can be many setup.exe in a given PC. Is there a way to make the messages display the full path of the executable?

I use ConfigureDefender to view the protection logs in a notepad file which includes the full path (example in spoiler). I'm not aware of any settings to do it in Windows Security Center though.
