Starting with the Anniversary Update, Windows 10 users with mobile PCs and devices can quickly and easily enable mobile hotspot functionality, allowing you to share your Internet connection with up to 8 other devices.

The shared network is a standard Wi-Fi network, and thus can be used by any device that has a Wi-Fi connection.

Note: You need a wireless adapter to share your connection, but the connection you’re sharing can be an Ethernet (wired), Wi-Fi, or cellular connection.

Step 1 Plug in and enable your wireless adapter.

Step 2 Navigate to Settings--Networking & Internet--Mobile hotspot.

Step 3 Customize

  1. Choose the connection to share your Internet
  2. Click Edit and customize your wireless network

Step 4 Turn on the hotspot
