You’d think that finding the Wi-Fi Password on a Windows 10 OS — for the SSID you’re connected to would be a breeze. Ironically, it isn’t, and the only reason I can think of why this is a bit involved is for security reasons.
In any case, follow the five steps along to find your Wi-Fi password on Windows 10.
Step 1: Navigate to the Main Wi-Fi Settings
However else, or like most of us do, search for “wifi settings” (without the quotes) in your start menu, and select the best match option.
Step 2: Go the The “Network and Sharing Center”
Within your main Wi-Fi Settings, under related settings, click on “Network and Sharing Center.”
Step 3: Select Your Wi-Fi Network
As soon as you head over to the section in step 2, you’d notice that the Wi-Fi you’re connected to, is listed under View your active networks. Once you see that, click on it. (Screenshot below for reference).
Step 4: Select “Wireless Properties” From the Subsequent Pop-Up
Once you choose your Wi-Fi, upon click, there would be a subsequent pop-up. On there, you should see a button called Wireless Properties. Hit that button to get to the final step.
Step 5: Reveal Your Wi-Fi Password
In this final step, head over to the security tab first. Next, hit the show characters checkbox to reveal the Wi-Fi password eventually. (screenshot below for reference).
