I don’t think there is a faster way in Windows (If that’s what you are asking for). You can either install cURL on Windows and do a simple thing like this
curl ipinfo.io. If your machine is Linux, I think it’s pre-installed and you can get your IP right from the terminal.
However, you can write up a vb script in Windows that will show you your public IP as a response from a server. Maybe the following script would help you.
Dim http : Set http = CreateObject( "MSXML2.ServerXmlHttp" ) http.Open "GET", "http://icanhazip.com" http.Send Dim ipbox ipbox = InputBox("Your Public IP",,http.responseText)
Save it as
myip.vbs in your desktop for quick access. You could also run it from CLI using this command –
