I am using the data on my android phone to create a Wi-Fi hotspot to which i connect my Pc. This as you can imagine drains my data fast. I want to know if i can change the settings for the firewall within Windows 10 in such a way that i can decide what programs connect to the internet and when, or do i have a option in a 3rd party firewall. Thank you.

Did you do for public and private? If that doesn't work. If you go to Control Panel and Windows Firewall with Advanced Security you can disable and block the conneciton.

So if i uncklic every program, there will be no outgoing or incoming data? And if a program wants to connect will it be prompted or will it be just ignored?

What about changing your networks settings so that Win 10 knows this is a metered connection.

Settings -> Network -> Change Connection Properties -> Turn Metered Connection On
