Recover Sql Password

So I have my site, that is currently running fine. I backup the SQL now and then. It's just a site I slap up IT notes to help me when out in the field, if I forget a command or something I can look for it on my site.

Now created a local setup of Wordpress to mess about with the different themes as think I want to change my theme on main site. Trying to load my SQL database up, but despite having written the password down, not sure if it's right. Everything works on the main site but now realise, if I need to restore, I may not be able to.

Is it easy to recover the sql password that was just simply setup via Cpanel, so nothing special?

The Wordpress local setup is on Windows and I'm not a fan of Linux.

Wordpress will have the password for it's database in it's configuration file.
