How to Recover WiFi Network Passwords in Windows 10

This guide will show you how to view the passwords to Wireless Networks that your Windows 10 computer has previously connected to, with no additional software to install.

  1. Click the Windows ‘Start’ button and scroll down to and select Windows Powershell. Then click the Windows Powershell app.
  2. Enter the following command (replacing NETWORK NAME HERE with the Network you want to recover the password from):

    netsh wlan show profile name=”NETWORK NAME HERE” key=clear

  3. Look for the Key Content line item in the Security settings section – and there’s your password.
  4. That’s it! You can repeat the netsh wlan show profile name=”NETWORK NAME HERE” key=clear command with any and all of the Networks you’ve previously connected to.
