How to Manage Wi-Fi Settings in Windows 10

Sunday, 15 May 2016

Windows 10 feature a different approach for connecting to Wireless networks and managing them. In the previous version of Windows, Wi-Fi setting can be easily accessed from notification icon, and you can forget a wireless network directly from there. But now Windows 10 has changed this easy way, and you need to drive in Windows setting to ignore or change a wireless connection's password.
I usually change my wireless password time to time, and this makes an awkward issue in Windows 10 because there is no direct option to forget Wireless Network's password directly like we do in Windows 7. Let's see how you can easily manage Wi-Fi settings in Windows 10.
How to Forget Password for a Network in Windows 10
It was easy in Windows 7, but nowadays you have to follow the long process on your Windows 10.

  • Open Settings (Win+I)
  • Type Wi-Fi and choose "Change Wi-Fi setting."
  • Now click on Manage Wi-Fi settings option.
  • Scroll down to "Manage Known Networks."
Now you can click on an adapter name and choose to forget it and reconnect it with changed password.
All Wi-Fi adapters can be still accessible as the earlier version of Windows, by navigating to "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network and Sharing Center". You can also manage adapter settings directly following location:- "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections."
Getting Back Wi-Fi Icon
