This tutorial will show you how to manually reset data usage stats back to zero as needed for networks in Windows 11.
In Windows 11, you can view the data usage of networks from the last 30 days. The data usage is itemized per type of network (ex: Wi-Fi or Ethernet), and by app usage.
The data usage stats for networks will automatically reset every 30 days (each month).
Starting with Windows 11 build 23466, Microsoft has added additional options to the Data Usage page that allows for daily and weekly data limits. The page will also now show how far a data limit has been exceeded.
You must be signed in as an administrator to reset data usage stats for a network.
EXAMPLE: Data usage stats reset for a network connection
Open Settings (Win+I).
Click/tap on Network & internet on the left side, and click/tap on Data usage at the top on the right side for the network connection you want. (see screenshot below)
Click/tap on the reset button for Reset usage stats at the bottom. (see screenshot below)
Click/tap on Reset to confirm. (see screenshot below)
You can now close Settings if you like.

Copy and paste the command below into the elevated command prompt, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)
