File extension .WFC
The .WFC file extension is a data file associated with the Windows operating system. It contains settings data related to wireless network connections and is used to configure and store settings for Microsoft’s Windows Wireless Network Setup Wizard. A Windows Wireless Network Setup Wizard (WNSW) is a built-in feature within the Windows OS and provides users with a graphical interface to quickly configure wireless networks.
The .WFC file stores its data in plain text format and contains several setting values including a network name, encryption type, network type, authentication type, SSID (Service Set Identifier), key index, bits per second rate, and more. It may also contain user-specified network priority values used to order wireless networks when multiple networks are visible. WFC files are typically associated with profiles that can be manually configured or created by running the Windows Wireless Network Setup Wizard.

Other related data files include WNX, .WBK, .CER, and .PF. These files may be used to store Microsoft Windows Wireless Network information related to connection credentials, settings, and security.
Programs for WINDOWS system
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .WFC) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .WFC extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .WFC file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .WFC extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .WFC extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .WFC file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .WFC file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .WFC file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .WFC file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .WFC file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
