How can I remove Live Tile updates in Windows 8?

Is there a method by which I can toggle on and off live updates for all the tiles in windows 8 in case if I want because some times when I am streaming some videos I want my full bandwidth to be used there.

I have read a post earlier telling me to do this on app by app basis but its not possible for me to go to each app every time to do this.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


As far as I know it can only be possible if you right click the app and click on "Turn live tile off". This shouldn't be a problem unless you have 100+ apps.

Also doing it once will disable it until you right click the app again and choose to turn on the live tile.

+1 : I think this is the only way. There is no documentation on multiple selection. – Rory Alsop Nov 2 '12 at 8:26
