  2. Next select the WiFi option and click Advance option which is under the list of available or the WiFi you are connected to.

  3. Finally toggle On the Set as metered connection button which is above the properties of the wireless connection you are connected to and exit out.

After you have follow through the steps outline above, Windows10 will never use that wireless network to update itself again provided that nothing about that network change.
