    New Wifi default to metered

    In Windows 10, is there anyway to have any new wifi network (not a mobile network, but rather a friends house) added default to "metered connection".

    I know how to change a wifi to metered, but would like to have the default set to metered as soon as it's connected, to avoid any updates.

    Yes, it is a Registry entry. See the procedure in my post #74 in another TenForums thread. {in case it is of interest, my post #73 in that thread lists the steps I take to avoid all automatic Windows updates}

    By making that change, every new WiFi network will, by default, be set as metered. You will still be able to change that back to non-metered for a specific WiFi network in the normal manner.
