Are you looking for the password to your wifi network?  If you have the wifi modem, follow these instructions.

Sandy what browser are you using, you may have selected save my password, if so you just have look at where your passwords are saved.   Firefox, you would click on the icon on the top right corner, select options, privacy and security, then saved logins, show password. 

If you use Explorer, control panel, then search for Credential Manager, there you will see your web addresses and clicking the down arrow will see more info about the site,  then show, will reveal the password.

So you may have your password for you modem/router saved there.  This is an easy option to find your password, if you didn't or use a different browser someone else may give some additional info.

So provide a little more info and possibly someone can assist.
