Given that you typically only need to insert your wifi password once on each device and it remembers it forever and ever, it makes sense why almost no one ever has their wifi password memorized, not to mention if you’re an MSP managing hundreds of devices.
If you don’t remember a WiFi password you’ve previously entered and need to share it with someone or use it on a different device, Windows 10 makes it easy to view saved network passwords when you need them.
There are a few different ways to view saved wifi passwords on Windows devices, and one of the easiest of them is this script!
This script lists Wi-Fi profiles on the system. Please note that the command in this script will only list the Wi-Fi networks saved on the system.
The other good news is that to use this script, you and your clients can be using different versions of Windows, and not only Windows 10! But then again, if that’s the case, maybe you should consider upgrading your system once you’ve recovered the wifi passwords…
But who are we to judge?
netsh wlan show profile
