Windows 10 doesn’t remember your WIFI password? Here is how to fix it.

Many Windows 10 users are reporting a problem when connecting to their trusted WiFi networks when they start their machine. Windows 10 forces them to enter the password of their WiFi everytime they restart the computer , something that is really uncomfortable.

Below you will see how to solve this problem and thus prevent Windows 10 from asking you for your WiFi password every time you turn on the computer. The first thing to do is to make the system forget about your WiFi , and then reconnect to it and force Windows 10 to save all the data of your network again.

To do this, click on the wireless network icon on the taskbar and then on Network settings . This will display a system configuration window where the WiFi configuration is displayed and a list of the networks found and to which you are connected.

    No change. Windows reinstalls the driver automatically, but still won’t remember the password.
