You forgot your WiFi network password and you can no longer connect new devices?

All is not lost. I show you here a quick and easy way to find your Wifi password.

You can access your network settings and display your WiFi connection password in plain text with a Windows command.

The use ofCommand Prompt is the fastest and easiest way to find your Wifi password in Windows.

First, launch the command prompt in administrator mode. To do this, click on the Start menu, type in the search bar command prompt. Right click on Command Prompt, go to More, and choose Run as administrator.

To display a list of all the Wi-Fi networks known to your machine, enter the following command:

netsh wlan show profiles

The names of all the Wi-Fi networks to which you have already connected are displayed. Among the networks in the example above, I want to display the password of the Wi-Fi connection funinformatique.

To do this, I enter the following command:

netsh wlan show profile name = 'funinformatique'key = clear | findstr 'key'

Replace funinformatique by the name of the Wi-Fi network for which you want to display the password. The password for your Wi-Fi network is then displayed in clear text in the command prompt.
