Windows 7: Opening more than one program slow down network?

Opening more than one program slow down network?


I am wondering if opening more than one program at the same time would slow down the internet connection. If one opens for example msn, skype, streaming video, many tabs, and other internet connected programs, does this will significantly slow down the internet speed?

Possible - Look into Resource Monitor > Network tab. There you can see which open pages generate traffic on your line.
