    Yes I see they moved reciprocal 1/x to the standard view. I often use cube root and sometimes y root of x. They are missing from the 10 calc.

    I think the approach going through "services.msc" is the ticket. I have two of these cheapo computers, well $149 anyway, more expensive than a couple eggs over easy. On the first, I did both. I set Ethernet to metered, and by going through services.msc in the run box, I double clicked Windows Update, clicking "disabled" for startup type: in the properties box.

    Both computers have Ethernet set as a metered connection, but only the first has "disabled" set for startup type. I've been using it longer, and Microsoft has yet to kidnap it. The second computer just got kidnapped for a half hour of my time. Apparently, Microsoft does not consider my Verizon connection as Ethernet.

    I need two computers, now that I've built my trucking business communications on computers, I need to have one working at all times or it could cost me a load, or loads, or worse. I always keep a backup laptop in the truck. Microsoft isn't reliable enough for my liking. Having two of them is the way I've been dealing with the problem.

    I have all connections marked as metered, and they can't do anything without my permission.

    You can but it won't work.

    I confirm that the addition of Group Policy Editor does not work in my Home Edition, but metered connections do.
