Windows keeps track of the amount of data moving through the computer's network interfaces – in other words, how much you've been downloading and uploading. Anyone who wants to know more about the data flow during a regular session or during the course of a day may want to take a look at the statistics.
To do this, head to the search bar and call up the command prompt by typing in "cmd". In the new window, enter "netstat -e" (without the quotation marks). This will give you the number of bytes received and sent.
In general, the figures are likely to be in the seven-digit (or single-digit megabyte) to 10-digit (single-digit gigabyte) range. If you're struggling with the conversion, try an online search for "byte into megabyte conversion" to get help from a conversion tool.
Keep in mind, however, that Windows will only monitor the data flow until the computer is rebooted. This will prompt the operating system to reset the counter. – dpa
