    Is there any way to discover my hotmail password?

    When logging in, the username and password are filled out for me, but I've just got a second machine and I have to enter the credentials. I don't know what my password is so I click 'Forgot Password' and select my email address as the method for receiving a code - but they never send me a code! I've waited days and nothing ever arrives.

    I have a massive file containing all my passwords but I must have forgotten to update for hotmail because that entry is wrong.

    Is there any other way of discovering it? Does Windows record it anywhere?

    Thanks - rev

    Sorry, but we can't help you with passwords.

    I'm assuming you sent the "Forgot Password" to a different email address? Maybe it went into your Junk/Spam folder?

    They're probably sending the code to the recovery email address you use/used when you set up that hotmail account... not that actual email account. Every popular email service has that recovery email address setup.. at least for the last ten years or so anyway.

    What browser are you using to access hotmail? Some browsers like firefox and chrome have the passwords visible in plain text in options.
    Don't believe everything you think.
