Use a speed measurement service such as http://www.speedtest.net Or see if your ISP has a dedicated page for testing Internet speed. I personally rather use an independent speed tester. Or even better use two or three and average the results to get a truer sense of your speed.

Thank you Animal.  I figured out where to look on my pc, and found my speed.  Problem solved.

You're welcome. I guess I didn't understand the question the way it was worded. Would you care to share your answer and how you found it so others may learn?

I went to control panel, network connections, right-clicked on my network connection and found out my DSL speed.  Hope this helps.

That doesn't work for me. I just use speedtest.net, works every time.

It also doesn't work for me.

 

I would like to know if Windows has a build-in speed test app.

I'm on Windows 10 on one machine and Windows 7 on another machine and the process that the OP described does not exist on my two machines. I hope that the OP comes on back in this thread and explains exactly what he saw when he performed those actions.

It doesn't work from the Control Panel's Network and Sharing Center.

 

Go to Settings, select Network & Internet.

 

In the Find Setting box type in View Network Connections.  Right click on WiFi and select Status.  You should be able to see the speed there.

When I did that the only result was a dialog box that said "No results for View Network Connections." Maybe they discontinued that setting because right now I am using Windows 10 Creators Edition, version 1703.

I just tried this on my Daughter's laptop and this feature is not included on her version of Windows 10, 1607.

When you type in view network connection in the search box it appears below the search box, click on this.

 

Edot:  I'm using the 1607 version of Windows 10 Pro.

If your dsl speed is 300 mbps, when you run a speed test what should the download and upload numbers be?
