Windows 10 OS has very less control over the user to disable automatic download through direct option. It would be a big disadvantage for those who uses mobile Internet in Windows 10 laptop , using Mobile hotspot option, Wifi tethering, USB tethering or blue tooth tethering option.
To stop automatic download in Windows 10 in wifi connection :
- After connecting the wifi network, Go to Network settings that can be selected by clicking on Wi-fi symbol in traybar
- Now select Advanced options in Wi-fi settings
- Enable metered connection as ON. If metered connection is set ON , then the system will not download security updates, software updates etc.
- One more setting is , open services.msc from search bar and disable the Windows update services
