Installed Windows 10 several weeks ago, and getting used to it.. slowly... but.... is there a way to prevent Windows Update from automatically downloading all updates? I am on a metered connection for Internet (satellite), and am only allowed 10G download each month, and with Windows 7 , I was able to do any updates by doing them between Midnight and 5am which is "free time" and the data download is not included on monthly limits.. Since installing Win 10, the automatic downloads have pretty much used up my monthly allowance, and if there is not a way to change the updates to a manual process, then I think I will have to "go back to Windows 7" before I go broke trying to pay for updates that happen automatically?
PS.. I may have found the answer to this or rather someone did for me... Thought it was in this forum, but can't find it back.. I used the Task Scheduler and set it up to "trigger" at 1am which is in the free time frame for my ISP.. took me awhile to figure out how to use it, but betting it will work.. Also set up Adobe updates to use the free time frame as well.. I will give it a week and see how it is working and will update this
