It would be of great help if we could monitor our internet usage, such as the amount of data we send and receive. This post presents two methods to monitor internet usage. The first method is to use an app from the Windows Store. The other is using Task Manager to see his internet usage.

  • Click the Windows icon on the screen. Open settings.

  • Click on Network and internet.

  • Also, click Usage details.

You can detect the applications that drain the Internet the most and adjust their usage accordingly. Hope this post helps you to properly monitor your internet usage. Especially when you have a limited data usage plan and run out of it quickly.
