Antimalware Service is a programme that runs on your computer. Windows 10 Professional x64 Bitd

Bitdefender TS 2016 is installed and functioning on my computer.

Why does Windows Task Manager display the process "antimalware service executable" running (and using a lot of CPU) on a regular basis?

Isn't this anything to do with Windows Defender?

When a third-party AV is active, I assumed WD is inactive.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
