Microsoft quietly released a new update for OneDrive on Windows 10 which introduces a major new feature. With the latest update, the company added the ability to throttle download and upload speeds for OneDrive. Yes, finally.

Previously, this wasn’t configurable and OneDrive used to slow down the connection when trying to upload large files. Unfortunately though, the new feature doesn’t seem to be available to all users just yet. Even if you are using the latest Windows 10 Insider builds or the latest Windows 10 Version 1511 update, you may not be able to use the new feature just yet.

However, if you are lucky enough, you might already have this new feature. To check if it’s available on your PC, just open up the settings for OneDrive from the tray and head over to the “Network” tab on the Settings window.
