How to Configure IP Address in Windows 10

Usually, a PC is assigned an IP address automatically by the router with the help of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. This makes it easier for a user who does not need to configure IP address for every new device.

Sometimes you need a static IP address that helps you connect apps to network devices using a particular IP address or forward ports through your router to devices connected on your network or allow certain devices to help find your network using your IP address. In such cases, you need to assign a static IP address to the devices. Let us go through the guide below that helps you learn how to configure IP address in Windows 10.

How to Assign Static IP Address in Windows 10

To change the IP address in Windows 10, you need to follow the steps below:
  • Right-click on the Internet icon on the computer’s taskbar and go to Open Network and Sharing Center.
  • Here, you need to click Connections and a new wireless Network Connection Status windows will open. Click on Properties.
  • A pop-up Window with network connection status will pop-up. Click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP v4) and change the IPv4 address to the IP address of your choice.
  • Click OK and this is all you need to do to configure IP address in Windows 10.
Follow the steps above and you will be able to configure IP address in Windows 10 as per your requirement.
