    Network Usage in Windows 10

    Hi,

    One of the possible reasons why this issue occurs is when your computer is not set as metered connection. A metered network is being set when you have limited data plan and want to control your data usage. To know more about your high data usage
    issue in Windows 10, we just have a few questions:

    • What is the make and model of your device?
    • Which build and version of Windows 10 are you running? To check it, click
      Start
      , type About your PC, then press
      Enter.
    • Are you using a wired or a wireless connection?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you set your device to a metered connection. To do this, kindly follow the steps provided on this

    link
    .

    We're looking forward to your response.

    Hi,

    One possible reason why the network data usage isn't showing up may be due to a third party program causing it not to work properly. To isolate your concern, we'd like to ask a few questions:

    • Are you using a third party app to monitor your internet usage?
    • Are you on a metered connection? To check, click this
