Windows 10 Build 16237 allows to adjust bandwidth for update download

Microsoft last pushed Windows 10 Fall creators update Build 16237 to insiders in the Fast Ring. This build brought some important new changes and features with itself. You can read its full changelog and what’s new by clicking here. But there are always some unmentioned changes that one can uncover by digging deeper.

So, Build 16237 brings a new feature in its update settings that allows one to control network bandwidth usage while using Windows update. You need to go to Settings–>Update & Security–>Advanced options–>Choose how updates are delivered–>Delivery optimization–>Advanced options.

You can see the option “limit how much bandwidth is used for downloading updates in the background”. Using this option you can limit or unlimit your bandwidth usage for update downloads.

There is one more option in Delivery optimization called “Activity Monitor” that shows statistics regarding your update downloads.

Thanks Pedro for the tip. Cheers!!
