How to view WiFi password saved in Windows 10 in a simple way

Do you need to see the WiFi password saved in Windows ? Usually once you've connected all your devices to your Wi-Fi router , you're quite likely to think you'll never need to rewrite it. These passwords are usually long and complicated to remember and if you have changed the WiFi password that comes by default on the router , that looking underneath this device to put it back will not serve you in retrieving it. In addition you will always suffer the visit of a family member who will ask you to be able to connect to your WiFi and it is easier to send you a Whatsapp or a mail with the same to write letter letter the same, is not it?

Today we will try to make your life a little easier in those moments or in those that you needed to reset the network configuration on your phone, tablet or PC and you need to retype the Wifi password on one of these devices.
Steps to find your WiFi password in Windows 10

If you do not have your Wi-Fi password written down anywhere, and you do not remember what it is, do not worry. There is a way to find the password of your Wi-Fi from your own computer with Windows , as long as you are connected to the Wi-Fi access point. But it is also important to note that this trick only works if you are the local administrator of your computer. If you do not, you will have to log into the administrator's account and enter your username and password (which slows down the process).

Step 1: Go to the network adapter settings. To do so, access "Network Connections" in the Control Panel. Another shortcut would be using the "Run" menu (Press Win + R or type "ncpa.cpl" in the Start menu)

Step 2: Once the "Network Connections" window appears, look for your own wireless network, and right click on the name; then select "Status" from the menu.

Step 3: In the "Wi-Fi Status" window, click on "Wireless Properties".

Step 4: Now go to the "Security" tab and select the "Show characters" checkbox. Your password will appear in the text box next to "Network Security Key."

Now, you must have the password at hand, and you can share it with a friend or relative, use it on other devices or simply point it somewhere so that you can access it quickly without having to go through this process again, or maybe to changing it if you find that your signal is being stolen , it will be a simpler way to configure Wifi on all your devices.

Comment on the box below, how did you find it and find WiFi passwords on your Windows, and if you know of any other way. Thanks for reading!
