    Where are the network passwords stored in 8?


    Hey there guys!

    I was looking to get a new wireless adapter, but I know that once I get a new adapter, all my stored wifi passwords will be cleared. I don't want to ask everyone for their passwords again as I find that very annoying.

    Does anyone know where I can get to the file where all my passwords are stored, save it and restore it when i pop in my new adapter? I dont even need to see the passwords stored, I just want my computer to have them already in place for when i want to connect to a network with my new adapter.
