If you are not sure what your WiFi/wireless password is for the network you are currently connected to, that can be found directly within Windows settings.

NOTE: This would not allow you to get password information for networks which you do not already have the password for.

Here is how to locate the WiFi password in Windows 10:

1.   Press the Windows Key and R on your keyboard at the same time to open the Run box. Type ncpa.cpl and click OK.

2.   Right-click on the wireless network adapter - it will either list "Wi-Fi" or "Wireless" and click on Status.

3.   Click on the Wireless Properties option.

4.   Click on the Security tab, then click on the Show Characters check box to reveal the WiFi password.
