How do I find the IP address of a printer on a network? Sometimes you may need to install the printer on a different computer, so you need to obtain your printer’s IP address. In this tutorial we’ll show you 2 simple ways to find out your printer’s IP address in Windows 10, 8 and 7.

Method 1: Find Printer’s IP Address via Configuration Sheet

If you have physical access to the printer, you can usually print the configuration page by pressing and holding a button (Power or Go) on the printer for about 5 to 10 seconds. You must find out the button/or combination of button by reading printer manual.

Some printers have the option to view the IP address directly from the system menu. For example, if you’re using HP Office Jet Pro 8600 printer, just go to the Home Screen -> Setup, then touch Reports and then select Network Configuration to see all of the printer’s network details.

If you can find a computer with the printer installed, here is how you can find the IP address of a network printer in Windows 10, 8 and 7.

  1. Open the Control Panel and set the View by option to Large icons. Click Devices and Printers.

  2. Right-click on the printer installed on your PC, and then select Printer Properties from the menu that appears.

  3. In the Properties window, go to Ports tab. Select the port that has the check mark and click Configure Port.

  4. In the next screen, you should see the IP address in the “Printer Name or IP Address” text box. That’s it!
