Managing WiFi profiles in Windows 10

Windows 10 removed the ability to list saved WiFi profiles in the Network and Sharing Center, so now we have to resort to the CLI.


To list all existing profiles (WLAN networks you’ve connected to in the past):

netsh wlan show profiles


To remove a network from your cache:

netsh wlan delete profile name="SSID"

Replace SSID with the profile/network you wish to delete.

Generate report for WLAN usage

I just discovered this cool WLAN report functionality while looking at the docs for netsh.
The command is not available on my Windows 7 machines so presumably it’s new for Windows 8 and later.

Please note that the command prompt must be run as admin.

netsh wlan show wlanreport

The command generates a nice looking HTML report and saves it to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WlanReport\wlan-report-latest.html

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be supported when using netsh on a remote client.
