There are many reasons you might want to check the password your Windows 10 laptop or PC is connected to. These could be handy if your computer remembered a network while your phone doesn’t have the credentials saved.
There are different instances where this is the case. For example, you visit a coffee shop, and the business doesn’t openly reveal passwords to customers. In this case, you’ll have to offer your laptop to a waiter or waitress to enter the password.
There are many other cases where this might be true. Maybe you just forgot your home Wi-Fi password, and you don’t want to reset the router.
Here’s how to check your Wi-Fi password on Windows 10.
1. Open Windows 10 Settings app
