    10586 released on November 2015

    Open a command prompt window and if it does not have a number at the top type in "ver" and press enter.

    How do I open a command prompt window?

    Right-click on Start, Command Prompt is in the list you'll see. Click on it.

    Only WiFi has a 'metered connection' switch visible in Settings, but all types of connections can be set as metered if you edit the registry. Presumably your Verizon USB modem appears to Windows as if it's an Ethernet connection. If so then the instructions here will work. There are two .reg files you can download that will switch 'metered' on or off for Ethernet.

    I made it to the box titled "select user or group". There is a place to enter text (Enter the object name to select) and it has a blinking cursor. Do I type "Administrator"?

    Can't we use gpedit.msc and set windows update to never check or update? That is in the tutorial under W. If so, can we then go to settings whenever we want and force an update even if this option is configured?

    I believe that it was removed in Win 10 Home.

    If you are at 'Step 4. Change the owner of the DefaultMediaCost registry key...' then you want to set it for the Administrators group, not the Administrator account (note the 's' on the end on the name). Type Adminstrators then click the 'Check Names' button.

    OK, I have Pro. However, do a Google search and you can see how to add Group Policy Editor to Windows 10 Home version.
