You’ve probably noted that sometimes multiple copies of a Wireless profile get saved in Windows. Eg: If you have a network named “joshua”, and connect to it after changing a few settings, Windows saves it as “joshua 2”. Sometimes this may get a bit annoying. The following post shows you how to delete such spurious entries.
Open the Windows Command line by typing cmd in the Start metro panel.
Now type the following to list all saved profiles:
netsh wlan show profiles
C:\Users\Someone>netsh wlan show profiles Profiles on interface WiFi: Group policy profiles (read only) --------------------------------- <None> User profiles ------------- All User Profile : gabriel All User Profile : lourdes library All User Profile : Lourde WIFI_Internet All User Profile : Idea spot All User Profile : Jabong All User Profile : ap
Now to delete the profile Jabong, type:
netsh wlan delete profile "Jabong"
