Having the exact same problem. There is no password viewing or reset. I have done all the suggestions I found on these forums. Nothing but problems after the November update with Windows 10.

OK this worked for me.

1. delete folder peernetworking. C:\windows\serviceprofiles\localservice\appdata\roaming\peernetworking

2. rename your computer.

3. rename homegroup other than the default "workgroup" but not the same name as it was before.

4. turn off all other computers on the network.

5. restart your main computer.

6. click on join the homegroup. give it some time and your computer will tell you there is no workgroup to join but it will still look for a password. click next in the password window. your computer will now allow you to start a new workgroup. Remember your password!!!!!!

7 turn on you other computers and delete the peernetworking folder as above, if it exist. Rename your next computer and change the homegroup to the same name as your main computer. If you do not, your main computer will sense the prior homegroup. restart the computer and join the network. Good luck!
