    You can now configure a wired network connection as metered to control data usage on your PC, and in this guide, we'll show you how to do it on the Windows 10 Creators Update.
    Windows 10 by default has unrestricted access to the internet to download updates, sync settings, connect to cloud services, and of course, to connect you online.
    The only caveat is that Windows 10 can use an excessive amount of data, and not everyone has an unlimited data plan to access the internet. A vast number of users connect online using a capped plan that restricts the amount of data they can send and receive over a period of time.

    One way to overcome this problem is to set a network connection as metered to reduce data usage and prevent extra charges. On Windows 10, it's been possible to set a connection metered for a long time, but the option was only available for Wi-Fi connections. If you needed to configure a wired network connection as metered, it required you to edit the Registry, which is not a convenient solution. However, on the Creators Update, Windows 10 introduces a new option to set an Ethernet connection as metered with a single toggle switch.
