Is there any easy way to do this? a configuration file? Not very important but useful and interesting. Thank you.

It’s stored in: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/yournetwork

You can also open GNOME Settings: Wi-Fi, selecting your network, clicking on the Gear, going to the Security tab, and clicking Show password.

If I just copy the file and paste it on another installation of fedora will it work?

No, those files are interface-specific. You’d have to modify and rename the file to the name of your new installation’s interface names. Your WiFi password is stored in that file, however.
