So I was messing around and entered the following command into Command Prompt:
netsh wlan add filter permission=denyall networktype=infrastructure

Problem is that it worked and now I want to undo it so that all availble wireless networks will show on this device's wifi adapter like before.
Yes, I know I can manually add them using the following command in Command Prompt:
netsh wlan add filter permission=allow ssid="SSID NAME" networktype=infrastructure

However, I would like to be able to see future available wifi networks display as well, like if I'm out in public and need access.
But right now, I feel like I just blacklisted every wifi network out there besides my home wifi network and I want to undo whatI did with the first command I mentioned up at the top of this message.

Hi CptCookie,

There are two things I would try. The first is to remove the filter you added. The command would likely read like this:
netsh wlan del filter permission=denyall networktype=infrastructure

If that doesn't work, you might want to do a reset on the network. You would go to Settings, Network & Internet, and at the bottom click on Network reset.
