Get Kernel Password unmask V1 (Nucleus Technologies). If you can see the password field, this tool will show you the password.

What "internet wireless passcode" do you mean? The password to connect to and setup your router? or the WPA-PSK Passphrase just to get a connection to the router? Or something else?

They are pretty hard to detect. I have look in the XML file export and the registry and reconstructing the key is tricky.

You know what you are connected to.   Make a NEW Wi-Fi Profile to the router and connect with a new password. Give the profile a different name.

Then open an admin command and run NETSH WLAN SHOW PROFILES  to list the profiles and delete the superfluous profile .  NETSH WLAN DELETE PROFILE NAME=profiflename

This will be the easiest way for you

Make sure you go into
-the Network and Sharing Center, click your Connections: <Wi-Fi Name> your computer is connected to
-inside the Wi-Fi Status Window, click on Wireless Properties under the Wireless Network Property of the connected network
-go to the Network Security Key option which will have the Wi-Fi password and you can check the option Show characters to make the password visible.

Yes you can see te starred password as "btan' recommended above or login to your router  thru web interface and go to wireless security and see whats the password, you can change from here as well.

Is this a laptop you personally own or that you have from your job?

I cannot find a way to get the Wi-Fi password within Windows 10. It is well encrypted.

Try making another Wi-Fi account. The Wi-Fi router will not stop you doing this.

Wait a second.... do you have the password to the wireless router? You should be able to just log into there and get the password.

Default username on many of the units is cusadmin and the default password is highspeed
Other newer units, default username is admin and default password is password

See below and if you do not find the option then the only means is to go into router to reset wireless password. If you also forget router password then just factory reset and redo again.
