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).

This tutorial will show you how to manually reset data usage stats back to zero as needed for networks in Windows 11.


You must be signed in as an administrator to reset data usage stats for a network.
