But we can save ourself from resetting Wi-Fi password if we ever connected our Windows 10 PC to that Wi-Fi network. Windows keeps a record of all our networks and their password so we don’t have to type the password again to connect to the same network.
We can recover our forgotten Wi-Fi password by running a couple of quick ‘netsh’ commands using Windows Command Prompt.
How to Find Wi-Fi Password With CMD in Windows
Step1: Press start and type CMD, right-click on the Command Prompt option shown as a search result and click on Run as administrator.
Step 2: Type netsh wlan show profile in the command prompt and press Enter to show a list of network names that we connect to. Note down the full name of the Wi-Fi network you want to find the password for. Here, the wifi name is Redmi.
Step 3: Type netsh wlan show profile Wi-Fi name key=clear, substituting ‘Wi-Fi name’ for the network name we just made a note of (for example, netsh wlan show profile Redmi key=clear) then Press Enter.
Step 4: Scroll through the results until we find an entry named Key Content -our Wi-Fi password will be listed next to it.
As now we got our Wi-Fi password, you can connect our device to the network to complete our work.
