How to Turn Your Windows 10 PC Into a Wi-Fi Hotspot


Windows 10 can turn your PC into a wireless hotspot, allowing it to share its Internet connection with other wireless devices. But how you set it up that depends on what version of Windows you’re running. Here’s how it all works on Windows 10 PC.

Share a Wired or Wireless Internet Connection in Windows 10

First, pop up Settings by pressing Windows+I on your keyboard.

On the main Settings page, click “Network & Internet.”

On the Network & Internet page, on the left-hand side, click “Mobile hotspot.”

On the right-hand side, turn on the “Share my Internet connection with other devices” switch. If you want something other than the default network name and password, click the “Edit” button and type whatever network name and password you want to use and then click “OK.”


And that’s all you really have to do in Windows 10. It’s one of the best new features of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

If you are using Windows 10 with theAnniversary Update” installed, then you’re luckybecause with that update, Windows now has a single switch for turning any PC with Wi-Fi into a hotspot, and it doesn’t matter whether the Internet connection you want to share is wired or wireless.
