Just something for all of us to be aware of, With the Creators Update, Windows 10 now downloads Critical (needed to keep Windows running smoothly, like security updates) automatically even over a metered connection.

No longer are all update downloads prevented, only non essential updates are prevented form downloading. Just a heads up as the Creators Update begins rolling out to everyone who uses Windows 10. (I adopted it early via the update tool)
