I wonder, is there anyway to show a user's current password in Windows 7? (if you are administrator)
I am not at all interested in changing the password, I want only to view the password. Is there any way I can do that?

By default the password is encrypted and that is stored. The plain text password is not stored and thus cannot be viewed. This default can be changed but you have to do that before the user sets the password.
