How do I find stored passwords in Windows 10?

I've been looking everywhere for my saved passwords on my windows 10 PC, actually I also need to find them on my android pane, but my main PC with widows 10 is more important. My tablet, phone and PC seem to have a problem accepting my new passwords after I changed them, or preferably without having to change them yet again. I tried the advice given to other users with the same question, but when I do manage to find my way to credential manager and manage passwords, it demands ID verification with a username and password, which I can't even remember having set up in the first place. I could really use some help with this issue, before I end up in the nut house! I've tried amongst others, the way described below:

  1. Press Win + R to open Run.
  2. Type inetcpl.cpl, and then click OK.
  3. Go to the Content tab.
  4. Under AutoComplete, click on Settings.
  5. Click on Manage Passwords. This will then open Credential Manager where you can view your saved passwords.

Open Start, type: credential manager
Hit Enter
Expand the credential, click Show

Enter your password

That's the problem, I don't even recall setting up a username/password and have no idea what it could be :(.

Honestly, I don't know; I suppose it would be with a Microsoft account. I don't believe I have created a local account, but can't be positive.

Based on the idea of possibly needing to use my Microsoft log-in details, I tried various such and it ended up accepting my newest OneDrive ID. This confuses me ever more, as after checking only my Skype password I found a fair few, very long, each different from each other and also different from the ones I have in my Firefox saved passwords and also from those I have on Roboform!!? Any idea how I can make sense of all theses, so I could have the correct ones on all of my devices, or how I could add Roboform to my tablet and phone?
