Just needed to recover an "asterisked" key from a web page. Dug up a neat little trick that should also illustrate why saving passwords in web browsers isn't secure... Using Chrome (I've heard rumor it also works in firefox but haven't tested), right click on the text box with the asterisks and select "inspect element". Now look at the right at the highlighted text.
Windows 10 did a forced update. All my Chrome browser tabs were gone when I opened Chrome; I had tabs I really needed open to use today. On a hunch, I pressed CTRL+SHIFT+T on my keyboard and brought them all back. That was awesome.
