Show wifi passwords in Windows 10

There is always a neet to show the passwords from the network that were saved in Windows 10. But I checked all the visual options to view the saved passwords again, but there is no way to do it directly. So, in order to see the saved passwords of the Wifi networks you have to do it from the command line.

  1. open the command prompt as administrator mode: start> run> “cmd” 
  2. type the command to show all the saved wifi networks: netsh wlan show profiles
  3. copy (CTRL + C ) the name of the wifi network that you want to get your password
  4. to show your passswod type: netsh wlan show profile name=WifiName key=clear

Note: the WifiName is the name of the wifi network from step 3.
