I've run out of space to store Wifi passwords. I once knew how to delete obsolete ones, thereby freeing up some space. I no longer remember how to do that, and also don't remember where I put the note that wasn't supposed to let me forget! Can anyone enlighten me? I promise I'll have it tattooed on my wrist.

The word you are looking for is "forget" - that's what deletes a saved network.

Try clicking on a name in the list and see if you get options. If that doesn't work, press and hold and see if you get some options. One or other of those should do it, but if not look for a 3-dot button when viewing the list for more options. Those are the 3 main Android UI methods, so one of them should work.
You're missing the point. I don't want to "forget" networks. I need to free up space in the retained wifi "password" dataset. There are only so many passwords that can be stored. When it's full, it will no longer be able to store new passwords. Thanks for the thoughts though.
What is the difference between removing passwords and freeing up space? How else do you think you can make space there?
In retrospect, you're absolutely right. My error. I won't euse my age as an excuse. Mea culpa.
