The password to your home or business Wifi should be longer than 8 characters, contain symbols, and both upper and lower case letters. Some may have even longer and more complex passwords. As such it’s nearly impossible to remember them. To make matters worse, your computer will store your password for you, so you’ll seldom have to enter it more than once.
Finding your password on your windows computer is not as straightforward as it could be. However, following the steps listed below will help you locate your password so that you may share it with your friends, family, or colleagues.
Right click your Wifi icon located on the bottom right of your taskbar.
Select Network and Computer settings. This option will populate after your right click the Wifi icon.
Click the Advanced Network Settings option
Under the Related Settings section, select More Network Adapters.
A new screen will pop up, if you don’t see it immediately, search your task bar for this icon. Double click the name of your Wifi.
Click the Wireless Properties button.
Click the Security tab at the top of the page. Then check the Show Characters box.
And voila! You have now located your Wifi password on your Windows 11 device.
