    Set Ethernet Connection as Metered or Unmetered in Windows 10

    My Question is, it is safe to do this on ethernet connection because windows 10 only give you this option on wireless connection but since my internet speed very slow i need to considering it.
    Yes, it is safe, indeed from the Creators Update on you don't need to use regedit - it will be in Settings > Network & internet > Ethernet - then click on Local Area Connection.
