Remember WiFi Passwords

reminder to myself:

Windows 8 or 10 sometimes bugs me with its not so intutitive user interface. AS Windows interface WiFi settings doesn’t bring the expected result, in the future this little netsh commands will bring me to my so well hidden WiFi password:

netsh wlan show profiles
netsh wlan show profile name="NETWORK_NAME_HERE" key=clear

The first command will list all your WiFi networks you where connected to, while the second command will show some detailed information about a specific WiFi network, including the plaintext password.
