In this article, we will try to solve one problem connected to recovering a forgotten password in Windows 10, which you most likely have already forgotten. In this article, let's take a look at the case of Windows 10 specifically.
Although it is impossible to retrieve the password of the Wi-Fi network that you were connected to before and are not currently connected to that network, it is possible to find out the password of the network you are currently connected to. We will now show you how to do this. Also, we will look at another way to remember a forgotten password - with the help of a special program.
There is a simple method to see the Wi-Fi password; follow these steps:
This method will only work if your laptop is currently connected to a Wi-Fi network, the password of which you have forgotten. If you do not have any connected computers, then you need to look for the password in the settings of the router or through a special program. But, the program only shows passwords from networks that you used to connect to.
WirelessKeyVie program is free and can show you the keys to all wireless networks that your laptop was connected to. Download the program WirelessKeyView , and run the .exe file from the archive. The program will run immediately; you don't need to install it. On the left, you will see the names of the networks, and on the right, in the Key field, you will see the passwords to these networks.
If you can't find the password in the system settings and you don't want to use the program, then the most reliable way is to look up the forgotten password in the router's settings. Connect to your router via cable, go to the router settings and see the password.
