HomeGroup Network Password on Windows 7

Windows 7 allows us to setup a local home network called HomeGroup. 

After setting the password, you can allow what folders, files and other resources can be shared among home computers. 

Recently, I forgot my password.

To retrieve the password, go to HomeGroup from Start menu. 


Select HomeGroup and you will see HomeGroup settings dialog.


On this dialog, select View or Print the homegroup password.

The next screen will show you the password.
