Using a VPN

I'm considering purchasing access to a VPN so I can securely connect to a remote site. I've never used a VPN before and I'm unsure of the details.

I have a Windows 10 PC which seems to come with a VPN client installed and all that is necessary seems to be to configure that client to use the purchased VPN service. However I'm not sure if setting this up would mean that all my traffic would use the VPN or only traffic to the remote site.

How do I ensure the VPN is used for only traffic to my remote site and other traffic connects to the internet directly?
