How can I find my Gmail account password on my PC?

Q: How can I find my Gmail account password on my PC?

On my PC I don't need to enter my Gmail PW every time as it is automatic so I don't remember it.
 
Logging into my laptop, after resetting it which has deleted all my apps and needs me to sign into Google but the PW which I have written down and used in the past is not recognised.
 
Another glitch is that my recovery email address was deleted a long time ago so no good. An option was to enter my library number which I did but got me no further. I have a user name but it is not asked for.
 
So if I can find out the PW which is working on my PC then I can use it on my laptop, yes?
 
Any advice please.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,
I forgot my email password of my gmail account. But I still logged in to the same account using windows mail universal app both of my mobile and PC. And also in chrome profiles. And I mistakenly couldn't save the password in google password. And now I couldn't be able to log in to my email using password recovery options even though I entered mobile authenticator number and security question. I'm not so sure about when I created the account but I check the date of first email which is sent by google using mail app. so I now know the date. And at last they ask the recovery email and I entered a email which I though I have added in the beginning.
But at last I'm getting the messege saying, "google couldn't verify??"
And now I'm asking is there any way to recover using my mobile number (which I have already added) instead of using mobile authenticator and without using security question and all above.

Or

Can I use my mail app or chrome profiles to get my password.

you should be able to recover using the mobile number , they send a text code to the mobile , which you then use to verify the account

A:HELP FIND WINDOWS ACCOUNT CODE TO CHANGE PASSWORD

 
 
where do i find that MS account code to satisfy MS, is it in her computer some where?
It's normally sent as a text to whatever cell phone number associated with the account. 
 
Or a non-MS email address, if one was registered when creating the MS account. For example, mine can go to my AOL account if I want it to, say if the cellular service is down or I'm out of network range. 
 
It will be a 4 digit code. 
 

 
 
1. Get User password via Windows Password Hint
While you type a wrong password, the password hint will pop up below the password hint box. Based on password hint, you can think of origin password generally.
But the preconsideration is that you have set up password hint for user account password, when you are creating Windows system account and password. Besides, password hint had better can remind you and only you of forgotten password. The most important thing is that it couldn't like password, but has to be related to password.

As seen above, my password hint is email [email protected], and my Windows 8 login password is the same as the password of email. So when the password hint pops up, I could think of Windows login password instantly.
2. Get into computer with PIN code, and reset password for locked account
PIN code is a quick, convenient way to sign in to this PC by using a 4-digit code. If you have ever created one, this may be the simplest and most effective method for Windows 8 password reset... Read more

I have just changed third-party Internet Providers for another company. I lost my email addresses in the transaction. It was a very small company so I could not transfer my email addresses to new account. So I won't have to go through that hassel again I opened gmail accounts.

My question is can I set up my gmail accounts as our default email accounts we access through Outlook? If I can, how do I do that? I have never even set up email on my new laptop, I just went through IP's server which was a hassel. I usually use one account on one computer and my husband uses one on another computer. I hate having to go to the gmail page. No I don't want all the bells and whistles Google is offering. I just want to turn on my computer, click on a link and open my email in a program I know how to use? I can't find any help through Gmail. Everything I found cost me. That leads to a second question. Does Google have a technical support phone number? One that does not cost?

Anyway, my computer OS is Windows 7 and I am using Outlook from Office 2003 on one computer the other computer uses Windows XP and Outlook from Office 2003.

There is no password set.
THere is just one user/account which is obviously also the administrator.
(the Account tab shows also HomeGroupUser$, but I guess is a default option...)

the point is that when I switch the pc on, I have to click on the icon of the user account in order to see the desktop. Is there any chance I can login automatically without even clicking on the user icon?
thanks a lot in advance

I found that once I upgraded to Windows 8.1 I had to use my Email account to Log In to my PC.
The User has to have a Windows Account (Mine is originally Hotmail - Live - Outlook).

I can not stand having the same Password and account info from my Email account the same as my PC.

I had to reinstall Windows 8 and then I was able to use a Personalized & Custom User Name & PC Password.

*This coincides with certain software I use when I install the same titles on multiple PCs. *(Serif - WebPlusX6 - I use a common User Name and file location).

***I will not tolerate having to be constricted to a Windows Account that makes me use the same password and user name for my Email Account and my PC.

*****Therefor, WINDOWS 8.1 is useless to me at this time.

P.S. I still get rapid boot times and custom features from Windows 8. *I assigned the Power Button where the old *Start button would be & pinned shortcuts to my task bar to navigate to apps I use frequently.

A:Seperate Windows Account, Email Password From PC Password

Hello Majestone, and welcome to Eight Forums.

You can sign in to Windows 8 with any "local account" or "Microsoft account" you want.

You do not have to setup a "Microsoft account" when installing or setting up Windows 8.1. A trick to this would be to temporarily disconnect the internet when you get to this point to then be able to setup a "Local account" instead.

If you want a Microsoft account, then you could have two Microsoft accounts, and use one to sign in to Windows 8 with and the other for your emails.

Either way, you could easily switch to a local account afterwards.
Local Account - Switch to in Windows 8
...or switch back to any Microsoft account you wanted instead.
Microsoft Account - Switch to in Windows 8
Hope this helps,

I have been using my Gmail account for years on my PC without having to sign in (already saved) and my written down saved PW now doesn't work (on my laptop after I reset it). But if I want to access my Gmail from another computer (which I do) I cannot login.

I have a recovery AOL email address but as I had not used it for more than 90 days I had to renew it - the PW remains the same but when I get Gmail to send a PW reset code to that AOL address nothing arrives.

As that Gmail PW is somewhere on my PC how can I access it and read the characters?

Can anyone advise please?

I don't think that there is a good answer for this problem, except starting over from scratch on one of my computers, but I shall ask regardless. Originally, I didn't intend to install my email client (The Bat) on my secondary computer, but due to the fact that the other computer went down for a few days, I did anyway.

Now, with both machines running, instead of both machines receiving the same messages, creating a redundant record in each, the computers split the messages, depending on which checks Gmail first. The email is left on the Gmail account online, but when the second machine checks, it is though Gmail sees both machines as the same one, and doesn't send the messages again.

I believe this is due to the fact that I copied the application data from one machine to the other, thus something in that data has an ID mark somewhere that masquerades each machine as being the same. I have no idea of where to look, and even if I did, no idea of how to edit it, without causing other problems. Chances are, I will just reset the secondary client to not check email at all, so that all messages come to the primary one, but if I need to access an old message when the primary is down for some reason, the only way that I could do so is online at Gmail, which I dislike doing, because I rarely label and archive the account, and have a very large pool of messages in the inbox.

I don't really expect a usable answer for this, but I'm hoping that someone might know a trick.
