Windows 10: Auto updates

    Auto updates


    I'm having trouble with the automatic part of the Microsoft automatic updates. My private connection is not free, and not unlimited. I want the updates, but I'd rather download them via a public (free) connection. My computer time is beginning to center around the automatic updates, and going to a public connection before I use my private one to save bandwidth. There's an automatic update almost every day.

    If there's a way to set my connection as metered, I can't find it.

    Help!
