I'm trying to determine a password that's in my keychain. Is there a way to see it?

If you don't see the Keychain icon in your dock, go to applications and launch it (may be in Utilities sub folder) I'm not on my Mac right now to check.

I don't see a "show password" box. Where is it?

There is no "show password" button. You have to click the inspector button> "copy secret information" and paste somewhere.
