    Thank you all of you very much indeed. I got it. However, I have a little question which is if I am connected with a wired cable via Ethernent connection. So, metered connection cannot be considered.
    My post #5 should have mentioned the same thing, I have three computers running both ethernet and wifi from the one DSL router. How would metered connection or DU "add up" all three computers' monthly usage?

    Setting your connection to metered does not mean anything gets added up. "Metered" does not mean Windows operates a meter. "Metered" means you have somebody else operating a meter on you [your ISP].

    Setting your connection to metered
    1 stops Windows update checks happening automatically
    2 stops Windows update automatically downloading updates if you manually run Windows update
    3 for local user accounts only, stops "Modern" app updates being downloaded automatically.

    There is further guidance in Manage data usage and Windows updates in Windows 10 [MSA forum WiKi].
