Windows

  • Click on the Start menu and type cmd. When you see the cmd applications in Start menu panel, click it or just press enter.
  • A command line window will open. Type ipconfig and press enter.
  • You'll see a bunch of information, but the line you want to look for is "IPv4 Address." The number across from that text is your local IP address (ex: 192.168.7.43).
