This brief guide will take you step by step through the process of removing (also known as “forgetting”) a Wireless Network in Windows 10.
Two of the most common reasons for deleting the connection settings of a wireless network that you’ve previously connected to are:
- Troubleshooting a connection that no longer works.
- To stop your device from automatically connecting to networks you don’t use regularly (particularly helpful for laptop and tablet users).
Here are the quick steps to take in order to remove a wireless network from Windows 10:
- Click the “Start” button and select Settings
- Select Network & Internet
- Select Wi-Fi from the column on the left side of the window. From the Wi-Fi panel now displayed on the right side of the window, scroll down to and select/click Manage Wi-Fi settings
- Scroll down to the Manage known networks section. From the list of all of your “known” (saved) Wi-Fi networks, select the one you want to delete by clicking on it once. Once it’s been selected, a Forget button will appear. Click that button to remove the associated Wireless Network.
- Select each of the other networks you want to delete (if any) and repeat the “click Forget” process. That’s it!
