The latest version of Windows 10 has a built-in bandwidth monitoring feature. Everyone may face problems with their Internet connection, such as high-speed Internet connection or problems with a stable Internet connection, in their daily activities. Some serious problems, such as the sudden shutdown of the Internet or the sharp drop in internet speed.

We used to assume that the Internet connection was interrupted due to problems with the device or network. Previous versions of Windows did not have a speed control taskbar option. To solve this problem, Windows 10 introduced a solution – Internet Speed Meter tools.

The Internet Speed Toolbar helps us download or download your network’s speed data. Now the internet speed meter is available on Android mobile phones. So without an Internet Speed Meter to work on a computer is very strange. If you want to add an Internet Speed toolbar to your personal computer, this is where you’ll get an idea of how to display this taskbar in Windows 10. Let’s start:


Steps to turn the Internet speed meter on the taskbar:

Be sure to follow step-by-step instructions to include Internet Speed Meter on the Windows taskbar.

Installing the Internet Speed Toolbar:

To get this tool, you need to download software known as the Net Speed Monitor tool. The app is designed to work in Windows, Android, and Vista apps. However, this does not mean that older versions of Windows are compatible with this Internet Speed tool. The following steps:

  1. First, you need to download the Net Speed Monitor tool software, as shown in the picture below. Then click “Download.” You’ll get options such as downloading for x86 or x64 systems. You have to choose your computer’s available memory options. First, the x86 option is available for 32-bit Windows, and another option is available for 64-bit Windows. Go back to the folder where you saved this run file. This installation file does not support windows below Windows 8; Installation will start normally. Above this version, you’ll receive an error message because “this OS is not supported, as shown in the picture below. Click the right button on the configuration file – go to the properties. In the properties, select the Compatibility tab, then you need to check the Compatibility box next to “Run this program in compatibility mode.” The “Previous version of Windows” should then appear on the drop-down list. Click OK to save changes made earlier. Double-click “Tune the file” to start the installation process. Follow the rest of the instructions on the screen during the installation process. Once the installation process is complete, you won’t see the internet speed directly on the taskbar. To do this, you must first include the program. To do this, click the right button anywhere in the taskbar dialog and select Net Speed Monitor. Underneath it, click with lic in the Toolbars. You can turn on the programs right away. You’ll see “Download and Download” (U and D) on the taskbar in the dialog below.

These are the steps needed to install Net Speed Monitor software successfully.


NetSpeedMonitor does not work?

As in my case, it is likely that NetSpeedMonitor will get stuck at zero and will not display speed even if you are connected to the Internet. In this case, you can make a simple solution below.

  1. Click the right button on the toolbar.
  2. Select Configuration.
  3. As soon as the configuration window opens, click the network interface menu that is opening and select a different interface to see if the counter is starting to work.
  4. If you don’t, try choosing a different interface. Also, make sure the monitoring is on.

By default, NetSpeedMonitor shows speed in CB/s (kilobits per second). You can change it to KB/s or MB/s or the bitrate of your choice using this option. You can also turn the Internet speed meter on/off by clicking it twice on the toolbar.

Suppose if Net Speed Monitor gets stuck in the process of doing your task, here are some steps you can do to make it work.

Step 1: Click the “Network Speed Monitor” button with the right button and select Settings.

Step 2: After that, you’ll see the Network Speed Monitor window – select Common –

If it’s still not working properly, repeat the same process and switch different network interfaces. Hopefully, this time the network speed monitor is working fine.
