How to Find the Wi-Fi Password Using CMD in Windows 11 ?

Sometimes we forget our WiFi password, and since all of our home systems and gadgets are connected to the same network, it is difficult to change it without having to save the new password on every device.

However, if we ever linked our Windows 10 PC to that Wi-Fi network, we can save ourselves from having to reset the password. Windows remembers the passwords for all of our networks so that we never have to enter them again to login to the same network.

By utilizing Windows Command Prompt and a few fast ‘netsh’ instructions, we can retrieve our forgotten Wi-Fi password.
