Here we can see, “How to Configure Windows 10 to Connect to a Wireless Network”

On a Windows computer, connecting to a wireless network is simple. When you hit the Wireless icon at the bottom of the screen, Windows detects any wireless networks in range and displays them in a list, as seen above.

Windows 10 to Connect to a Wireless Network

Tap a network to connect, then input the security key when requested. You’ll be linked if the key is accurate.

You can select to connect to the network automatically whenever it comes into range when you log in. You won’t have to manually pick the network or enter the security key if you choose this option; you’ll be immediately connected.


Windows keeps track of every network you connect to, which benefits networks you use regularly, but a disadvantage for networks you won’t use again. Follow these procedures to tell Windows to forget a network:

1. After clicking Start, go to Settings.

The Settings window is displayed.

2. Select Network & Internet from the drop-down menu.

This opens the Network & Internet page, which displays a list of all available networks.

3. Scroll down to Manage WiFi Settings at the bottom of the list of known networks.

This opens the Manage WiFi Settings page, which includes a Manage Known Networks section.

4. Click the network you want to forget in the Manage Known Networks section.

As displayed, the network has been chosen.

5. Select Forget.

Why isn’t my Windows 10 computer connecting to the Internet?

Your Windows 10 PC should be restarted. Most tech issues, including those that prohibit you from connecting to a WiFi network, can be resolved by restarting your device. To run the troubleshooter, go to Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot > Internet Connections > Run the troubleshooter from the Windows 10 Start Menu.

Why is it that my PC refuses to connect to WiFi while others do?

If your device and its WiFi adapter work correctly on other devices, the issue is with your device and its WiFi adapter. On the other hand, if the Internet isn’t working on other devices as well, the issue is most likely with the router or the Internet connection. Restart both your router and modem if they’re separate.
