    Configuration of the metered connection features


    Hi

    As a metered connection via Ethernet or via Hi-Fi disables or limits some features of Windows 10 Home v1607, it is possible to configure some of this functionality so that they work in a standard way?

    Thanks

    Bye

    Having read this link, I deduced that a metered connections cause other effects as described in the paragraph "What Setting on Connection as Metered Does".

    Now, I wanted to know if it is possible to configure each connection of this type avoiding the effects described by these points "Tiles may not update" and "Other apps may behave differently".

    Thanks

    I would direct you to an MS site such as technet.
