You can set a metered network on Windows 10 to prevent automatic app updates and download large update files. This is useful when you temporarily connect to your computer to a mobile hotspot or any charged network which your mobile carrier charges every MB you use.
Click "Start" and choose "Settings"
Choose "Network & Internet"
Choose "Wi-Fi" from the left panel.
Click on "Manage known networks"
Choose the network you want to set.
Scroll down until you see the phrase "Set as metered connection"
Click on the toggle to "On"
After completing these steps, your selected network will not automatically download any updates in the background anymore.
