    Disable UPnP without disabling Network discovery


    I want to disable UPnP because the port are being open without my notice. My modem does not allow disabling UPnP.
    When I search on Google, it just give me tutorial how to disable Network discovery. That's not what i want, because i use it. I want to disable UPnP on Windows so that it doesn't open the ports like IP cameras have option to disable UPnP.
    How do i do that?

    in latest October update you can stop media streaming (control planel / Network and Internet (Network sharing center).

    Or go to services (click on Start and type services) and disable (or stop and set to manual) UPnP Device host.
