Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist.

If the computer you are using now is connected to the wi-fi (not a computer connected to your

router with a cable) you can get the password ***** it.

Can you tell me what version of Windows is on that computer?

We have a router but is listed as wifi I have windows 10 Can you tell I do not know what I am doing ? : )

Thank you. On your screen down in the bottom right corner, to the left of the time and date do you see a

Wi-Fi icon? It looks like a dot with 4 curved lines emanating from it in a leftward direction.

Great.

Thank you.

Here are the steps to get

your network security key/wi-fi password ***** a Windows 10

computer that is already connected to your wireless network.

On your keyboard, hold down the Windows logo key to the left of the spacebar

and press R.

The Run box will open.

In the text area type: ncpa.cpl and click OK

The Network Connections window will open.

Right-click on your Wi-Fi icon (the one with the green bars)

and select Status.

Click the Wireless Properties box.

In the Wireless Properties window, click the Security tab at the top.

Put a checkmark in the Show Characters box.

What you see to the right of Network Security Key is your wireless password.

It is case sensitive and must be entered exactly as you see it on your screen.

Let me know the result please.
