One of the biggest benefits of the modern world is Wi-Fi. However, it can be tough to remember different Wi-Fi passwords for your home and office networks, unless you save them in your system. But if you have forgotten to do that, you will find it difficult to log in to the network the next time. If you have ever been in a situation where you are unable to access your Wi-Fi connection on any device where the password has not been saved, you can get the password quite easily if you are a Windows user. If your system has Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 or Windows 11 and is already connected to the Wi-Fi network, you can easily find your password.
