    Trouble installing optional features from Settings

    Am having trouble installing optional features from Settings -> System -> Apps & Features -> Manage Optional Features? If I select any feature to install (such as English(GB) Handwriting) all that happens is the view refreshes and the feature isn't installed. Additionally, I constantly get notifications throughout the day that "Windows is adding features" and then immediately a notification that "Something happened and we couldn't install features"

    maybe that is why, you need to try wifi to verify if possible. As soon as I unchecked Metered wifi, i was able to install flawlessly.Maybe win 10 sees cellular as metered automatically, not sure...
