How to Find Your Printer’s IP Address? 5 Quick Ways

There are 5 easy ways to find your printer’s IP address.

  • Through Printer Screen
  • Using Windows Settings
  • From Control Panel
  • Using the Router Portal
  • Printing the Network Configuration Page

Let’s see the detailed steps for all of ’em.

Through Printer Screen

This is the easiest way to find the IP address if your printer has a touch screen. Most of my printers have it and I find it too simple, honestly.

  • Simply go to the Network Settings using the touch screen and look for something like TCP/IP settings.
  • The IP address of your printer will be mentioned there.

Using Windows Settings

  • Go to Settings > Bluetooth & devices > Printers & scanners > choose your printer > click Printer properties.
  • Go to the Ports tab > select your printer > Configure Port > There’s your printer’s IP address.

From Control Panel

  • Open Control Panel > View devices and printers > choose your printer > right-click it and select Properties.
  • Go to the Web Services tab and you’ll see the printer IP there.

Using the Router Portal

If you’re the admin of your router, or say, you have the username and password to login to the router, you can also view the printer’s IP address there.

  • Simply open the router portal and search for a setting that says DHCP Client List, Client List, Connected device, or something like that.
  • There, you’ll see the printer name along with the IP address.

Print the Network Configuration Page

Isn’t it nice when the printer itself prints the IP address?

  • For instance, my HP Inkjet series printers print IP address on a page when I press the Wi-Fi and Information button simultaneously.
  • On Canon printers, Wireless and Power button combo will do the job.

It’s worth noting that the steps to do this totally differ depending upon your printer manufacturer/model.

So, you have to look after the user manual of your printer to know the exact procedure.


Well, that’s all for today. All the 5 ways discussed in the article are easy-peasy and works like charm to find the IP address of any printer. You can use any of the method.
