Find Wi-Fi password using command
If you are more the type-type type, you will prefer the netsh command anyway. This method allows you to find not only the Wi-Fi password of your current connection but also that of previous connections. The syntax of the command looks like this:
netsh wlan show profile name="ConnectionName" key=clear

Find-WIFI-password-on-the-command-prompt-with-netsh
Finding Wi-Fi password on the command line with netsh
Notice that you only need the quotation marks for the connection name (profile name) when the name contains a blank. You can find the password in the Security settings section next to Key Content.
To get a list of your previous Wi-Fi connections, type this command:

netsh wlan show profiles

If you have a computer that can connect to the Internet, you can find the password by doing the following:
Step 1:      Open a web browser.
Step 2:      Enter the IP address for your wireless router into the search bar (for example, 192.168.1.1). Look for your router’s default IP address in your router documentation or online.
Step 3:      Enter the user name and password to open your router’s configuration webpage. Most router documentation includes the default user name and password.
Step 4:      On the configuration webpage, look for a wireless or wireless settings option.
Step 5:      Look for a security or wireless encryption setting. The security key (sometimes called a network key, a pass phrase, or a network password) should be listed nearby.

Note
Different router manufacturers have different settings pages. If you can't find the wireless security key, contact the router manufacturer.
