    Copy network settings to usb stick?


    In Windows 7 I could copy my network settings to a usb stick and transfer it to another machine just by clicking on the file generated - really simple. But I can't find the same option in Win 10 - Anybody?

    Not sure about doing it through GUI but if you mean Wi-Fi you can export with
    Code:
    netsh wlan export profile name="YourNetwork" folder="E:\Profiles" key=clear
    and import with
    Code:
    netsh wlan add profile filename="E:\Profiles\Wi-Fi-YourNetwork.xml"
    You need to change your profile name and where you want to save it of course. The key must also be exported in clear text if you want to restore it on another PC.

    Yep - under the menu 'Administrate wireless network' in the 'Network and sharing Center' win 7, the security section. The quoted text is a direct translation from Danish - not sure about the englih name for it, but hope you get it.

    It was just that simple thing as mentioned. Under the menu 'Administrate wireless network' in the 'Network and sharing Center' win 7, the security section. The quoted text is a direct translation from Danish - not sure about the english name for it, but hope you get it.
