Could you, please follow the instructions I am going to send you, and let me know if
any of the steps are not quite clear?
I'll be happy to clarify them to you!
1. Click the Wi-Fi icon in the bottom right
2. Click Network & Internet settings
3, Click the Wi-Fi tab in the left panel
4. Scroll down and click Change adapter options. It's under "Related settings" in the right panel.
5. Right-click your Wi-Fi connection and select Status. You'll see the Status option on the menu that expands.
6. Click the Wireless Properties button and click the Security tab.
7. Check the box next to "Show characters." It's below the "Network security key" field. This replaces the black dots in the "Network security key" field with your Wi-Fi password.
