    Windows 10

    Auto updates

    The trouble is, my private connection only allows 2 GB of bandwidth per month. I'd rather download the updates via a free public connection when I'm at a hot spot. But I don't know how to stop the updater from using my private connection. Help!

    Hello Roger,

    If your private connection is a wireless connection, then setting it to be a metered connection will stop automatic updates.
