Connected to Wi-Fi: Go to Start Settings > Network & internet > Wi-Fi and then click on the network you're connected to. Then go to Properties, and you'll find your IP address attached to the IPv4 address.

Connected to Ethernet: Go to Start > Settings > Network & internet > Ethernet and do the same thing as before — hit Properties and find your IP address next to IPv4 address.
