How To Manage Offline Maps In Windows 10

Maps downloaded in Windows 10 for offline use can take up space if there are a lot of them . While they can be very useful for navigation when not connected to Internet, the storage and update settings for them can still be tweaked if needed.

Here is how :

Access Windows Settings (shortcut : Windows key + I). Choose System.

By default, maps are automatically updated over wi-fi or any network that is not metered. These updates too can be disabled if needed. Turn it off from Map updates section.
