    Changing WiFi password in win 8


    After doing a lot of searching and looking at several complicated ways to change the password on my win 8 to access my home WiFi, all I had to do was to right click on the SSID and tell the computer to forget it. This cleared out the old password and it asks for the new one. Turns out that what seemed to be very difficult was too easy.
