How Do I Find my IP address if I’m using Windows 7

Windows 7 is the most user-friendly and easy to operate Windows to date. You do need some getting used to if you are switching from XP or other Windows, but in couple of days you get so used to Windows 7 than every other operating system seems difficult.

Since every other function is easy, finding IP address in Windows 7 is also very easy. No matter you are using a wireless adaptor, router, modem or a wired connection.

Command prompt will appear on your screen. Type ipconfig and press Enter

The command prompt screen will show you multiple numbers. The number against IPv4 is your IP address. It will look something like this:

There is also an alternative way. If you do not wish to use command prompt, you can obtain your IP address directly. Follow these simple steps:

Your IP address will be visible in front of IPv4.
