It kept running. I just had to work around the defective part of the screen.
I bought a refurbished ThinkPad X390 and moved on.
Until I needed the password (pre-shared key) for a Wi-Fi network that I couldn't remember.
That's easier than I imagined. iTechtics has a great article on it.
For me, the easiest way was to run a simple Windows command.
- Open command prompt (Press the Windows key and then just type "com" without the quotes).
- Run the following command:
netsh wlan show profile name=WifiConnectionName key=clear
Replace WifiConnectionName with the Wifi SSID
That was almost too easy.
