INFO: WiFi Profile Management in Windows 10 (3RD PARTY)

Everyone knows that the interface for wireless profiles in Windows 8 & Windows 10 have been frustratingly dumbed down.

Let’s say you wanted to:

  • Change the priority of the wireless networks that Windows automatically connected to
  • View the WiFi password / key for a previously configured

Unless you like using command line tools like ‘netsh’, this is a little frustrating.

imageThe good news is that there’s a 3rd party graphical tool out there called “WiFi Profile Manager” that provides a graphical view of:

  • WiFi Profiles / SSID names
  • Network connection order
  • Security type
  • Password / Wifi key

imageBy right mouse clicking on a profile you can change the connection order, view the configured WiFi key/password, remove the profile, and set the network as the “default”.

It’s free so if this is something that you’d like to try, download the tool from below:
(Note: This is a 3rd party tool and not from Microsoft)
