Windows 10 comes with a feature of whitelist or blacklist your own WiFi. It’s always irritating to view lot’s of neighbors wifi when you open your windows 10 PC. if you will whitelist your WiFi then you are only able to see your own WiFi.This helps you connect to the appropriate network to your device.

and enter the command “netsh wlan show profile” to view the available WiFi.
