Changing your IP Address to be static is easy. When making a device have a static address you can do it two ways. Either through your DHCP server (most probably your router) or by the computer itself.
This tutorial is going to show you how to make your IP static in Windows 10.
Setting a Static IP
Open the Control Panel. After the Creators Update it can be done easilly by clicking Start + R the typing control.exe or if you don’t yet have the creators update. You can right click on the start button and click on the Control Panel.
Near the bottom there should be a listing for ‘Network and Sharing Center’. On the left of that page. Click on ‘Change adapter settings’. Choose your default adapter. Right click it and choose Properties.
It will show you different options. Select the one ending in iPv4 and click on Properties.
Now we can select ‘Use following IP Address’. Enter all of your information. Once finished go ahead and click OK and you can close all of the windows required to change this.
