Different Ways To Find IP Address Of Windows 10

Are you looking to find the IP address of Windows 10? Your PC’s IP address (Internet Protocol) is an address that provides an identity for your mobile device on a network. Whether it is a local network within an intranet at a business, your home, or a huge network like the Internet. Whenever you visit a website on the Internet it uses a unique IP address, too. But hopefully, we use simple names such as Microsoft.com using DNS.

Why would you like to know your IP address, though? Well, we live in a world where we are surrounded by many devices that want to communicate or interact with each other. Whether it is connecting two PCs together in a P2P fashion for sharing resources or to access another device remotely. Also, if you want to fix devices on a network, knowing your IP Address can help a lot.

Find IP Address Of Windows 10

There are different methods to find your IP address. Let’s begin with the simplest method that enables you to use the UI and not the command line.

Use UI To Find IP Address:

  • Head over to Settings > Network & Internet. Then choose either Wi-Fi or Ethernet (depending on how the device connects). In this scenario, I’m using Ethernet.
  • Then choose the Ethernet Connected icon. Move down to the Properties section and you’ll then view the information of IPV4 address.
  • Searching your Wi-Fi IP address is quite different. You still move to Settings > Network & Internet, but then choose Advanced options. Then move down to the Properties section to check the IP address of the device.

Searching An IP Address Via Command Prompt

Right-tap the Start button or press Windows Key+X to bring the hidden quick access menu and choose Command Prompt (Admin) or — choose Windows PowerShell (Admin) depending on your Windows 10 model.

Now input: ipconfig then hit the Enter key.

In this situation, I am connected to both Wired or Wireless networks, so I have IP addresses shown for both.

System Information Panel To Find IP Address:

  • Head over to the Start menu and input system information in the search bar. Then tap on the System Information app to proceed.
  • Choose the Components tab to expand it from the System Summary panel.
  • Choose the + icon before the Network tab to expand it more.
  • Then tap on Adapter to check the info of your network adapter.
  • Move down the Adapter menu to search the IP address.

Use Control Panel:

  • Head over to the Start menu and input the control panel in the search bar. Tap on the Control Panel app to proceed.
  • Tap on the Network and Internet tab in the Control Panel.
  • Now choose Network and Sharing Center on the Internet or Network menu to continue.
  • Tap on the active networks whether it’s Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
  • Choose Details… from the Wi-Fi status menu.
  • From the Network Connection Details tab, you can also locate the IP address as it will be mentioned by the name of IPv4 Address.
