Immediately after running it, the main window displays every application that currently send or receive data on your network.

Also, if you close an application and then run it again, AppNetworkCounter will continue the update the network counters of the same application entry.

At any time, you can clear the entire list and start with empty window by pressing Ctrl+X (Clear All). You can also reset the network counters of selected items by pressing Ctrl+R (Reset Selected Counters).
