Windows 7 Control Panel Homegroup not revealing Homegroup Password

I installed Windows 7 on my laptop, and I also have a desktop running Windows 7. I am trying to connect my laptop to my homegroup with the password for my homegroup, but my desktop will not reveal it. Is there any other place that I can find it?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello Admiral,

If the desktop computer will not let you view the homegroup password, then you might see if you may be able to change it, then use the new password to join the laptop to the homegroup.

If not, then you might go ahead and start over by leaving the homegroup on both computers, create a homegroup on the desktop to get a new password, and join the laptop to the homegroup with the new password.

Hope this helps,

Shawn
