Windows 10 has a metered button!!!!

Most people don't know but windows 10 has a meter button in there network settings when using wifi

1.Click on window button
2.Click on settings
3.Click on network & internet
4.Click on advanced options
5.Click on set as Meter and make sure it says on

This will help a little bit of data and prevent your some apps running in background or background downloading. Hope this helps everyone we use this when we were exede customers we got hughesnet today so far we like it.

Metered only works on wireless connections.
You can make a registry change that will affect wired but ..... it is a registry change.

One very important thing to keep in mind the Data will reset daily for the first 20 days.  Many folks were not aware of that and ended up using all their data in just a few days, after the 20 day update period.

As far as I know, there should be a welcome e-mail that explains this now.

Good info Ben and thanks for sharing!

I found out this weekend that Windows 10 is really a big resource hog and not just in data. Keep an eye out!
