Hi CordovaToby :)

There's many ways to find your WiFi password under Windows, but the easiest might be to access your router web page (config) and go grab the password from there. Microsoft also have a really complete guide that shows you how to find the password of the wireless network you are connected to, here:


Alternatively, you could use NirSoft WirelessKeyView utility to find the password. It might be detected by your Antivirus software, do not worry, it's a false positive. That utility is safe to use.

Ooooh, ooh, a chance to give a bit of help rather than ask for it.


The Canon PIXMA Wireless Setup Assistant is a very handy little tool for finding the names and passwords of access points to which you are or were connected.  I've not had any of my antimalware or antivirus scanners complain about it.
