Windows 10 Tips (Data Usage Overview & Resizing The Start Menu)

DATA USAGE OVERVIEW

Windows 10 has a neat built network bandwidth tracker, just like most smart phones.  So if you are noticing some slower internet speeds, use the Data Usage Overview to find out which programs are using the most bandwidth. All you need to do to access this feature is open the Start Menu and search for Data Usage Overview.

Once you run this, it will show you what apps are using the most data.

RESIZE THE START MENU

With the tile-based interface Start Menu, you can easily have less viewing room or too much viewing room.  So the best thing to do is to resize it.  just open the Start Menu and position the cursor to either the top or the right of the menu causing it to change to a resizing cursor.  Then all you have to do is click and drag to make it either smaller or larger, whichever you prefer!
