Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you forget your WiFi password? It happens to the best of us, but don’t worry, there’s a solution. In this article, we’ll walk you through how to recover a password for a WiFi network that you’ve previously connected to on your Windows Vista machine.
Firstly, open the command prompt by typing in CMD in the search bar. Once there, clear the screen by typing ‘CLS’. In the command prompt, type in ‘netsh wlan show profiles’ to see a list of all the WiFi networks you’ve connected to in the past. You’ll see a list of all the profiles saved on your machine, including the name of the network and the password.
To find out the password for a specific network, type in the command ‘netsh wlan show profile [network name] key=clear’ and hit enter. For example, if you want to find out the password for a network called ‘Santos 01’, type in ‘netsh wlan show profile Santos 01 key=clear’. This command will show you the password for that particular network.
By following these simple steps, you can recover the password for any WiFi network that you’ve saved on your Windows Vista machine. It’s a useful trick to know, especially if you visit different offices or friend’s houses where you’ve saved the WiFi network but can’t remember the password.
