How to Find MAC Address of Windows Computer

Find Mac Address in Windows 10 & 11

Every device connected to a Network is identified by its own unique hardware identification number, which is commonly known as MAC (Media Access Control) Address.

In general, most users want to know the MAC Address of their Desktop or Laptop computer to setup MAC Address Filtering and troubleshoot Network problems.

MAC Address Filtering is a commonly used security feature used by employers to permit only authorized computers and mobile devices to access the company network.

In MAC Address Filtering, the company Modem/Router is configured to accept traffic requests from whitelisted MAC Addresses and block all other requests.

This way the Network remains protected, even if someone manages to hijack its IP Address and tries to gain access using IP Address.

1. Steps to Find MAC Address Using Settings

The easiest way to find the MAC Address of a Windows Laptop or Desktop computer is by going to Settings on your device.

Go to Settings > Network & Internet > make sure Status is selected in the left-pane. In the right-pane, double-click on the Properties button, located below your active network.

Open Network Properties

On the next screen, you will find MAC Address listed next to Physical address (MAC) entry, under “Properties” section.
