    I recently got laptop with windows 8. I notice that whenever I am trying to install a larger app from the Windows store, I cant browse the internet or use apps that require a connection. Even people on the same wifi network have the same problem, even if it is just me downloading the app. Is windows configured to use ALL of the bandwidth in order to install an app? Is there a setting where I can make it only use like half? I don't mind if it takes a little longer to install.

    Thanks

    What is your wifi download speed.? And be aware there is a difference between the download speed given by your provider (mostly a max speed) and the actual speed you get ("including" distances to server, interferes etc)
    If this is "low" then probably the downloading uses the total bandwidth.

    If you open the task manager during the download you can see what the actual download speed is or use a app to check your download speed.
