You can turn your Windows PC into a mobile hotspot by sharing your Internet connection with other devices over Wi-Fi. You can share a Wi-Fi, Ethernet, or cellular data connection. If your PC has a cellular data connection and you share it, it will use data from your data plan.

When you turn on mobile hotspot, you can turn on or off a power saving feature that will automatically turn off mobile hotspot in five minutes when no devices are connected.
