How to Get the Wifi Password on Microsoft Using Command Prompt

If you’ve forgotten the password to your wifi network, or if you need to access the password for another reason, there is a simple way to do so using the Command Prompt on a Microsoft operating system. Here’s how you can get the wifi password on a Microsoft computer using Command Prompt.

Step 1: Open Command Prompt

Press the Windows key + X and select “Command Prompt (Admin)” from the list or type “cmd” in the search bar, right-click the Command Prompt icon, and select “Run as administrator.”

Step 2: Type the Command

Once the Command Prompt is open, type the following command: “netsh wlan show profile” and press enter. This command will show a list of all the wifi networks you have connected to using your Microsoft computer.

Step 3: Find Your Wifi Network

Look through the list of networks to find the wifi network you want to retrieve the password for and make note of its name.

Step 4: Show the Password

Once you have the name of the wifi network, type the following command into the Command Prompt: “netsh wlan show profile [network name] Key=clear”. Replace [network name] with the name of your wifi network that you obtained in step 3. This command will show you the password for the wifi network in question.

Step 5: Copy the Password

You can copy the password from the Command Prompt by selecting it with your mouse, right-clicking, and selecting “Copy”.

And that’s it! You now know how to retrieve the password for a wifi network on a Microsoft computer using Command Prompt. It’s a simple process, but it’s important to note that you will need administrator privileges to run the Command Prompt and access the wifi password. If you don’t have administrator privileges, you may need to ask someone who does to retrieve the password for you.
