                         how to see wifi saved password in windows 10

Finding a WiFi password in Windows 10 is very easy using a few CMD commands. These commands work even when you are offline or connected to some other WiFi network.
Whenever we connect to a WiFi network and enter a password to connect to this network, we actually create a WLAN profile for this WiFi network. This profile is stored on our computer, along with other necessary WiFi profile data.

Using the commands, we can further optimize our specific Wi-Fi network, for example, enable some features, such as mac randomization, changing the type of radio of your WiFi, etc.
In case you cannot remember the password of your wireless network, one of the ways is to access it through the settings of your router. But since viewing the router’s settings can sometimes be quite a challenge. Thus, instead of using the graphical user interface (GUI) to search for individual passwords, we can also search for the WiFi password of this particular WiFi network using CMD.
