Windows 11 will be able to view all saved WiFi passwords

Microsoft is working on an easy way to view all saved WiFi passwords in Windows 11. The new feature is available in Windows 11 Preview Build 23466, which was made available to Windows Insiders on the Dev Channel this week.

To view saved passwords from wireless networks, just go to “Settings”, then open the “Network and Internet” section, select the “Wi-Fi” item and the “Manage known networks” option. A list of all saved WiFi networks is displayed in the window that opens. All you have to do is select the network you want and click the “Show Wi-Fi wireless network key” button.

Now in stable versions of Windows 11 it is not so easy to find the password for the Wi-Fi network. To view the password of the network to which the device is currently connected, you need to open the properties of the wireless connection and on the “Security” tab, check the “Show icons” option. If for some reason the user needs to view the saved passwords of other wireless networks, you need to launch the command line and become familiar with using the netsh command to get the information you need.

The mentioned innovation will make it much easier to view saved passwords from Wi-Fi networks. At this time, the new feature is included in the Windows 11 beta, which is available to Insiders. When it will appear in stable versions of the operating system is still unknown.
