This tutorial will show you how to delete a wireless network from the list that Windows 10 stores – which is a very common step in resolving wifi connectivity problems.
If you’re having trouble connecting to a wireless network that you connect to all the time – deleting (or “forgetting”) that network, and then reconnecting to it, will often resolve the problem. Note: you’ll need to re-enter the password for that network after you ‘forget’ it, so make sure you have it handy.
- Click the Network icon in your Windows 10 notification area (bottom right corner of the screen).
- Then select Network & Internet settings
- In the left column, select the Wi-Fi option.
- Locate the link titled Manage known networks and click it.
- Now locate the WiFi network you want to forget and select it by clicking on it once. When you do, two buttons will appear – click the one titled Forget
- The next time you connect to that network you’ll need to re-enter the password (assuming it requires one). Now you know how to delete a wireless network in Windows 10!
