I just got a Windows 10 laptop and it saw the WiFi from my AT&T router so it got on the Internet fine.  But I notice that it also sees my desktop computer there, which has a CAT5 cable going into theAT&T router, so I guess that puts the desktop machine on the same network as the WiFi devices connecting to the router.  But if I click the desktop computer icon on the new laptop,  it asks for  a username and password to connect. It's been years since the desktop was set up and I don't know the username and password.  Is there a way I can get this from the desktop machine, itself, which I can log onto from the keyboard as an Admin user?

Thanks
