    Do you mean the password used by your computer that's kept in the Computer object in the Active Directory? Or are you asking how to get you local account password so you can log on to your computer?

    If it's the AD Computer object's password the answer is that you cannot. The password's encrypted. You can, however use the Reset-ComputerMachinePassword cmdlet.

    Nor can you "get" a local user account password, which is also encrypted.
