Reset Data Usage
Restart Win 10's network usage stats

Windows 10 includes a built-in network usage monitor which shows you the bandwidth consumed by all your apps over the last 30 days.

If you've never noticed the monitor before, you're not alone-- it's easy to miss. Launch the Settings app, click Network and Internet > Data Usage > View Usage Details for the breakdown.

This works well, but the system gives you no control over the data usage period. It's always the last 30 days, annoying if - for instance - you want to measure your usage over the current month.

Reset Data Usage is a tiny portable tool which can reset your usage counts to zero whenever you like.

The program doesn't have a manual, but then you won't need one. Clearing your stats is as simple as launching the program and hitting "Reset Data Usage".

Alternatively, using a /R switch from the command line enables resetting the counts from a script. Use this from a scheduled task and you could automatically reset usage stats every day, week, month, whenever works for you.

Verdict:

Windows 10's network usage monitor is a handy tool, but it's short on configuration options, and deciding when the count should start is one of the most obvious. Fortunately, Reset Data Usage fills the functionality gap and makes the monitor much more useful.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
