There are times, you are connected to a wifi connection but either you forgot or don't know the password.

But, don't worry, there is a very simple trick you have to do to get the password using Command Prompt.

Step 1 => Open Command Prompt [You need admin privilege so try right clicking on the Command Prompt and click on "Run as administrator"]

step 2 => Type netsh wlan show profile name=yourwifiname key=clear

Once this command is executed you will see the result as shown below:
