Currently I have two Windows 7 64 bit Pro Laptops and several printers that are all connected to my homegroup.

However, when I tried to connect the Windows 10 I was told the password was incorrect.

I adjusted the settings and finally was told that Windows had successfully created a new password.

BUT, it did not tell me what the password is and I don't know how to find it.

Can someone help me with this dilemma?

Thanks,

Great Flight 70

I have an HP8460p 64 bit Windows 10 laptop and am trying to connect it to my homegroup which consists of several Windows 7 64 bit Pro laptops, a Windows 7 32 bit desktop and several printers.

The homegroup password was not recognized when I tried to connect the Windows 10 to it so I adjusted some of the settings and finally was told that Windows had created a new password and that my Windows 10 was now part of the group.

However, I was not told what this password is and don't know how to find it.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to do this?

Thanks so much.
