My windows 10 consumes so much data

Points where you can save your Data

Turn off background apps

By default, Windows 10 keeps some apps running in the background, and they eat up a lot of data. In fact, the Mail app, in particular, is a major offender. You can turn off some of these apps by going to Settings > Privacy > Background apps. Then toggle off apps that use background data that you don’t need.

 

Turn off notifications

Another area that I notice can save you some data is turning off Action Center Notifications. For instance, if you don’t need to have background apps notifying you of on-going activities, just disable it. Right-click on the Action Center icon in the system tray and select Turn on quiet hours.

 

Turn off Live Tiles

Feed-based apps such as News will retrieve the latest news and other information in the background. If you keep Live Tiles turned on. You don’t need to do this for every app, but for select apps like Mail, Twitter, Weather, and Facebook, you can keep it on. You can turn that off by right-clicking on the Tile and “Turn off live tile”.

 

This Might Help,

First of all you need to set Your Connection As Metered. For doing that- 

Go to Start > Settings >Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Advanced Options.

Then Toggle On Set as metered connection.

Then you can Disable PC Syncing you don’t need to have it running around the clock. For doing that- 

Go to Settings > Accounts > Sync your settings and turn Sync settings off.

Also, there are many more ways to stop Windows 10 from using so much data. Just google search on it.
