See in Windows 10 which apps the network is using

The 10 can show you which apps are using your network and how much data they're transferring. You can even see a list of apps that have used your network in the last 30 days.

In this article, we will not just look at which Windows 10 applications use the Internet. We will see all the use of the network. If an application is communicating with a remote server on the Internet or another computer on your local network, then it is using your network connection and this is detectable.

Use it to see current usage
To check which applications are using your network now and how much data they upload and download, see Task Manager.

To open the Task Manager in Windows 10 make a right at and select “Task Manager” or press Ctrl + Shift + Esc.

If you do not see the Network header, click on "More Details" at the bottom left.

Then see the "Network" column.

Technically, the "Network" column is not a complete list. If a process does not use many network resources, Windows rounds up the consumption to 0 Mbps (Megabits per second). But it's a quick way to see which processes use a remarkable bandwidth.

If you click on the Network column header, the processes will be sorted according to their usage.

Launch Resource Tracking for more details
For more detailed information, go to the "Performance" tab of the Task Manager and from there click on "Opening of Resource Surveillance”(Open Resource Monitor) at the bottom of the window.

Click on the “Network” tab and you will see a list of processes or uploading data over the network. You'll also see how much data they're transferring in B/sec (Bytes per second).

This window shows the actual consumption of processes that use even a small network bandwidth, which were displayed in the Task Manager using 0 Mbps.

And in the Task Manager and Resource Monitoring window, you can right-click on an application and select "Internet Search" or "Online Search" to find out more about what each process is.

See Using network data for the last 30 days
Windows 10 tracks applications that use your network and how much data they transfer. You can see which applications have used your network in the last 30 days and how much data they have transferred.

To find this information, select Settings> Network & Internet> Data usage. Click "View usage per application" at the top of the window. (You can press Windows + I to quickly open the Settings window.)

From here, you can move to a list of applications that have used your network for the past 30 days.

If you work in a Wi-Fi network, you can see applications that have used the current Wi-Fi network or a list of applications that have used all the Wi-Fi networks to which you are connected. If you are on both Wi-Fi and Ethernet (cable) you can view different lists for each internet connection. Select what you want to see in the "Show usage from" box.

The top of the list will contain the obvious culprits, ie the applications that use the internet the most. Scroll down and you will see applications that are rarely connected to the internet and do not use much data when they do.
