Forgetting Wireless Networks in Windows 7
Posted by Michael Sturm, Last modified by Michael Sturm on 20 April 2016 12:37 PM



This tip sheet details the process of forgetting wireless networks in Windows 7, useful if you'd like to change a stored password or stop a network from automatically connecting.


Forgetting the Wireless Network:


  1. Start Network and Sharing Center in the control panel. The control pane can be accessed in the Start Menu on the lower left.



  1. In the Tasks pane, click Manage wireless networks.



  1. In the Network table, please select the existing profiles and click Remove. Or right-click the connection you want to delete, and then click Remove network.



  1. In the Manage Wireless Networks - Warning dialog box, click OK.



The connection is removed from the list of wireless connections that you can view or modify. To reconnect to the network, you must be in range and be able to see the network in the list of available networks via the WiFi icon in the lower right toolbar.
