on Command Prompt as shown below.

cmd - command prompt netsh wlan show profiles

3. After you run the command it will appear several SSID ever connected or connected to your laptop or computer as shown below.

command prompt netsh wlan show profiles

4. Next, to know the password of Wi-Fi on a particular SSID, type :

netsh wlan show profile name = "SSID name" key = clear

And press Enter to execute the command. See the example in the picture below where the SSID name I use is BDG-94.

netsh wlan show profile name=BDG-94 key=clear

5. After the above command is executed, it will appear a lot of information from the SSID that you want to know the password. Well, the WiFi password of the SSID, you can see in the Security settings.

The data that is in the red box is the password of the Wi-Fi you use.
