How to run ipconfig in Windows 7
January 9, 2011
Type "ipconfig" in the command prompt, then hit Enter to run.
Running ipconfig directly in Windows 7 may cause you to experience the ipconfig box to pop-up and run for a split second and the screen to flash, but then go away. The reason for this is probably because you are running ipconfig directly from the Windows 7 search box or Run box. To get around this, you'll want to run ipconfig from the Command Prompt. Here's how:
- Open up Command Prompt by typing "cmd" in the Windows 7 search box or go to All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
- In the command prompt type, ipconfig and then hit Enter.
- The ipconfig process will run and display the ipconfig information within the command prompt window.
