When I try to view pwds in the Chrome browser I get asked for my "Windows password".
Ive looked at these passwords in the past.
I dont have a "windows passord" and have tried all the pwds I have and nothing works.
Thank you,

which version of Chrome do you have?

try to browse chrome://flags, then find Disable Password Manager Reauthentication and Enable this. Restart your Chrome browser and try if it helps

I tried that too and nothing.  
What I did to fix it is actually spend 45 minutes changing my MS live account pwd
