You can also run, manage and delete your WiFi networks using the command prompt. In fact, the command prompt offers many more features than the standard network connection settings in Windows 10.

To do this we only require a CMD(Command Prompt) with Administrator privileges. Here are some best commands for your CMD to run, manage, connect to WiFi networks :

1. Search for command prompt.
2. Choose Command Prompt (Admin) in the results.
3. To locate the name of the network to connect to, type netsh wlan show profiles and press Enter. Write down the name of the network you want to connect to.
4. To locate the name of the interface, type netsh wlan show interface and press Enter on the keyboard. Write down what you find in the first entry, next to name. This is the name of your network adapter.
5. Type netsh wlan connect name="nameofnetwork" interface="nameofnetworkadapter" and press Enter on the keyboard.
