    I'm not sure what Microsoft intend to use this for (there appears to be no official documentation I can find). Perhaps it's for seriously important security updates, but none appear to have qualified as that (yet). Either that or it's broken and updates that do qualify aren't being downloaded.

    - well, it would be interesting to check that. Usually with Home using the registry is the way lacking the group policy editor.

    That says:

    Using Windows Registry
    If you are running Windows 10 Home, Run regedit and navigate to the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows
    Create a new key under Windows key and set its name as WindowsUpdate. Next, create another key under it and name it AU.
    Now under this path, in the right pane, create a new DWORD AUOptions:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
    Set its value to 2. The following options are available

    • 2 – To notify for download and notify for install
    • 3 – To auto download and notify for install
    • 4 – To auto download and schedule the install
    • 5 – To allow local admin to choose setting

    If your Windows 10 comes without the Group Policy editor, apply a Registry tweak. Open Registry Editor and go to the following registry key (create it if you don't have it already):HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AUThere, create a new 32-bit DWORD value named "AUOptions" and set it to 2:

    I'd be surprised if Brink got it wrong though..

    I don't have Home so can't check - perhaps you can... Noted- thanks.

    Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Delivery Optimization
    Max Upload Bandwidth / Enabled / 40
    Maximum Download Bandwidth / Enabled / 800
    Download mode / Enabled / LAN (1)
    the value of 40 KB/sec and 800 KB/sec are half of my max internet bandwidth

    Wait less than two weeks, upgrade to 1709 and you can now restrict bandwidth used for updates.

    I'm running home edition, so I have no group policy editor in this edition of Win10.

    This doesn't appear to have have any effect at all. Update is still behaving the same way as before.

    A useful reference in this case is Microsoft's Group Policy Settings Reference for Windows and Windows Server, an Excel spreadsheet that lists all available policies for GPEDIT, what registry keys they use, and what the settings should be.

    The ones for Delivery Optimization bandwidth are apparently DOMaxUploadBandwidth and DOMaxDownloadBandwidth in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DeliveryOptimization

    There's also one to limit bandwidth as a percentage of the available bandwidth.

    Note: setting a registry key in Home that is normally only created/used by GPEDIT may lead to a red 'some settings are managed by your organisation' message appearing (and in some cases can grey out some options) on the relevant page in the Settings app. If you make such a registry change, keep a record of what you did - you may want to undo it later to get rid of the 'organisation..' warnings and/or re-enable an option.

    Limit bandwidth used by Windows Update - Super User

    Note: this is Win 8 based, but will probably be the same.
    Read from
    If you don't have a Pro edition,
    - after the group policy text.

    Comment on the Fall update- due in about 3 weeks:
    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update will limit the bandwidth used for Windows Update
