How to View or Print Your Homegroup Password in Windows 7

information   Information
If you have forgot your Windows 7 homegroup password, then this will show you how to view or print it to see what it is again. You must have this password to be able to join a computer to your homegroup.
Note   Note
HomeGroup makes it easy to share pictures, music, documents, videos, and printers with other people on your home network. You would have had to created a homegroup first before you will have a password to use to join other computer to your homegroup.



Here's How:
1. Open Windows Explorer, right click on Homegroup in the navigation pane, and click on View the HomeGroup password. (See screenshot below)

NOTE: The password is case sensitive, so it will need to be typed exactly as it appears here when used to join a computer to the homegroup.
