A network password in Windows XP is a security password that you must enter to connect to computers on networks and the Internet. Typically, when you log in to Windows XP, you are prompted to enter your username and password if you have enabled it. If you would like to find your network password, you must access it through the computer’s Stored User Names and Passwords feature. Stored User Names and Passwords will allow you to see all of the passwords associated with your computer.

Click on “Start” and go to “Control Panel.”

Hit the “User Accounts” link. Select “User Accounts” under the “Pick a Control Panel Icon” header.

Click the user account that contains the network password you want.

Select “Manage my Network Passwords” on the left side of the User Accounts dialog box. A list containing all network passwords and usernames will appear.
