How to Configure an IP Address on Windows 10

How to configure an IP address on Windows 10 - IP (Internet Protocol) address is a logical address on a computer which is a binary row of numbers consisting of 32 bits to 128 bits, the IP address function is to identify the host on the network in order to communicate with each other.

The IP address is divided into IPv4 which has a 32-bit numeric length, and also IPv6 that has a 128-bit length. For the distribution process, the IP address is divided into static IP and dynamic IP.

Static IP is an IP address that is manually configured on a computer by an administrator, while dynamic IP is obtained from the DHCP exchange process on the network, to get a dynamic IP address, of course, there must be a router that acts as a DHCP Server on the network.
