    Delivery optimization is grayed out, as is advanced settings allowing me to control bandwidth


    Delivery optimization is grayed out -- I cannot choose to allow or deny downloading from other computers on my network. Advanced settings is also grayed out so I can't control how much bandwidth update is using, in either the foreground or the background.

  2. Windows 10 - Delivery Optimization hogging bandwidth

    Hi Abhishek,

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check if it helps.


    • Click the Start menu button (or type “settings” in the search box), choose Settings and click Update & security (toward the bottom of the Settings window).

    • From within the Windows Update tab, click Advanced options.

    • Under Choose how updates are installed, change Automatic (recommended) to Notify to schedule restart:

    • Next, click Choose how updates are delivered

    • Under Updates from more than one place, switch the toggle to Off:

    • Click the upper-right X to close the window; your changes will be saved.


    Let me also inform you that this is an integral feature of Windows 10 as updates are installed automatically. To know more about Delivery Optimization,:

    Delivery Optimization eating all my bandwidth

    Hi ShamPoyekar

    Open the Settings App (gear icon on your Start Menu)

    Go to Update and Security - Windows Update

    Go to Advanced Options - Delivery Optimization - Advanced Options

    Pull the bottom two sliders to their minimum values

    That will seriously reduce the bandwidth and amount of monthly data used by Delivery Optimization for you . . .

    How does Windows Delivery Optimization detect the bandwidth available?

    Hi Jason,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    In the heart of the Windows kernel there is a networking stack. It contains a suite of algorithms that would determine the available bandwidth.



    You can use the PowerShell cmdlets to monitor the delivery optimization.
    Get-DeliveryOptimizationStatusreturns a real-time snapshot of all current Delivery Optimization jobs. For more information, I would suggest you
    to refer to the article: Set up Delivery Optimization for Windows 10 updates



    Additional info:



    If you have further queries, I would suggest you to post your query in the
    TechNet Forums, where we have support professionals
    well equipped with the knowledge on Delivery Optimization.
