To Have Upload and Download Speed on the Taskbar

Occasional Contributor

Almost 90%, if not 98%, of Windows Users, are connected to the Internet, downloading and uploading something always. I wonder if it is possible for Windows to have this Upload and Download speed to show somewhere on the Taskbar so that we can monitor easily our bandwidth at a glance while we are working, studying or taking a break?


This would be an amazing feature that would save us from getting unstable or unsafe third-party app always to do this crucial task. Thank you for considering this suggestion!

There is an application in the Microsoft Store from Microsoft Research and you may try it out:
However, there is no such tools (from Microsoft) to place it on the taskbar.

Thanks @Reza_Ameri for your reply, took a look at the app you mentioned but it's not really what I need as it is testing only the speed of internet.
However, what I need is to monitor constantly through a notification on the taskbar of the Upload and Download bandwidth used in my PC, either it is from the internet or within my network. That way I can see on hovering on that notification, which application is using the most my bandwidth.

When you open your Task Manager, in the Performance Tab, you have the Wi-fi/Eternet section showing exactly the bandwidth used in my computer by any task (Send/Receive). That monitoring tool is what I propose and suggest Microsoft to put somewhere on the Taskbar for me to see always like my Time/Date. :)
Like I mentioned, it is not available.
However, you may add a feedback through the Feedback Hub app.
