I don't know how much help this will be but it might be worth a try.
"What's a metered connection?



A metered connection is an Internet connection that has a data limit associated with it. Cellular data connections are set as metered by default. Wi-Fi network connections can be set to metered, but aren't by default. Some apps and features in Windows will behave differently on a metered connection to help reduce your data usage.
  • To set a Wi-Fi network connection as metered:Select Start > Settings > Network & Internet.
  • Select Wi-Fi > Advanced options > Set as metered connection.
Help from Microsoft"


ON EDIT: Here is some info from PC World on why this may help. HERE

I am less than thrilled with 10. It took 4 days to download, it would only continue while the computer was in use. I finally got it to work but the process was a bit painful, I am not a computer expert. It is working now but I am still looking for 'stuff', I had to search to find disc cleanup and my settings. IMHO, it might be good for Microsoft employee job security but I really don't see any advantage for the end user.

Disk cleanup.  From a file explorer right click on the disk and select tools.  Same as with W7, 8, 8.1.  There's other ways but this is the simplest.

I thought this was a neat trick but I can't find "tools" or "defrag" with a right click of the mouse on the drive [C:]

My computer was on when I walked away and when I returned Windows 10 was doing a major upgrade. Now I can't find my calendar, it was in Outlook 7. Any ideas??

Check your settings/preferences in Outlook.   Calendar has not been deleted.

I believe there is also a Calendar app on the start page.. But I'm not sure it shares the Outlook Calendar files and just now this turkey won't go to start.. Ok Rebooted and returned.. It may have been on the START page but if so I deleted it.

It is however under ALL APPS.. Go to start page (If like me you boot to desktop press the WINDOW key on the left near the ALT and CTRL)

There are 3 lines at the top left, and bottom left.. the bottom one shouhld bring up a list of apps.. One entry is ALL APPS.

Scroll down to the Cs and it should be there.   You may right click and pin it to various places.  And it does log into your Microsoft account.
Windows 10 is all about burning bandwidth so it logs into your Microsoft accoutn.

I upgraded to Windows 10 several months ago, when it was first rolled out.  It has since had several upgrades, but last night it went through an upgrade which took over 2 hrs.  It was like the original upgrade to Windows 10 in duration.  Everything, including my startup, favorites bar, search engine preference, all my favorites, photos, passwords, etc. were saved.  But it got me thinking, although I backup my computer, I don't think any of my favorites are backed up anywhere.  Is it possible to back up or save favorites onto a thumb drive, and if so HOW?

In Chrome you click on the bookmarks button and it will show a page of your bookmarks. Click on the organize button and you will see where you can export them as an HTML file. HTH.

In Firefox, Click on the Bookmarks menu item, then "Show all Bookmarks". In the screen that pops up see "Import and Backup" on the top line!! HTH

Thanks.  I'll try it on either Chrome or Firefox.
