How to Find Saved Wi-Fi Passwords in Windows 10

Wi-Fi passwords become quite difficult to remember when you are using a couple of Wi-Fi networks to connect your multiple devices. It is crucial that you don't use easily predictable weak Wi-Fi passwords as they can be guessed by anyone. The first step for securing your Wi-Fi is to use a strong password. A strong password may contain special characters, capital letters, or weird strings of words. Initially you may memorize the password but later you will forget it.

The only way to connect a device to a Wi-Fi network without manually entering the password is to use the router's WPS key. WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) key will automatically insert the password in the device which is requesting network access. WPS should be used carefully though. But if your router doesn't support a WPS key then the only way left is to find and retrieve the saved Wi-Fi password from Windows 10.
