How to find out your IP address on Windows?
Your IP address is a vital and very useful piece of information about your
Windows PC. It's not obvious how to find out what it is but luckily it's very
easy. Follow this step by step guide to discover what your IP address is.
We've written this guide using Windows 8 but don't worry if you're using Windows
7 or a previous version, we've included some notes so you get can the job done
Open the Charms Bar by moving your mouse to the right hand edge of the screen or
swiping in from the right if you have a touchscreen.
Click on any of the images to enlarge them.
Click the Search option in the Charms Bar.
Search for 'command prompt' in the search box or find the app under the Windows
System section. Once you've found it click on it.
Note: Windows 7 and previous users can run the command prompt from the Start
Menu. Either click through All Programs, Accessories, and Command Prompt or
click Run, enter 'cmd' and click OK.
Now whatever version of Windows you're running, you've opened a command prompt.
All you need to do now is type 'ipconfig' and hit enter. A list of settings will
appear including your IP address.
Step Five (optional)
If you require extra details such as your physical address (aka MAC address),
then type 'ipconfig/all' into the command prompt and hit enter.
