Method 1:

1. Open the Windows 10 Start Menu and type in Internet Options > Open Internet Options

2. Select the Content Tab > Next to Autocomplete Click on Settings

3. Click Manage Passwords Button > Click Web credentials then you will see the websites you have saved passwords for under “Web Passwords”

4. Expand the website you would like to view the password for then next to “Password” click Show (You will need to type your Windows password in)

Method 2:

1. Open the Windows 10 Start Menu and search “Control panel” > Open Control Panel

2. Once Control Panel is open change the “View by” to Small icons then click “Credential Manager”
