Windows 10 includes a feature to let you view the network data usage of the PC from the last 30 days. The data usage is itemized per type of network (ex: Wi-Fi or Ethernet), and by app usage.

If you like, you could see your data usage at a glance from a data usage live tile on your Start menu.

This tutorial will show you how to add a network data usage live tile on the Start menu for your account in Windows 10.
