How To Find Your IP Address In Windows 11

It's IP, man.

An IP Address is a unique identifier that is assigned to a device connected to the internet automatically. Standing for ‘Internet Protocol’, it allows information to be sent from and to Windows 11 PCs. Much like moving home or travelling, IP addresses change when connected to different networks and determine your geolocation to provide users with location specific content. Knowing an IP address will also come in handy when troubleshooting network issues and setting up routers.
