    in windows phone 8.1 I used internet sharing feature to transfer files using wifi between my phone and pc. I'd just turn on mobile data nd then hotspot, and then immediately turn it off so that I don't use data but the hotspot stays on. but on windows 10 mobile they fixed that. when I turn mobile data off, the mobile hotspot also turns off. is there any other way to have a hotspot without using data connection??
