Find Your MAC Address on Windows

How to locate your MAC address using a Windows computer.

While the ipconfig command will work on Windows, the output is substantially long, making it much more difficult to find the relevant information. Instead, we recommend using the getmac command.

  1. Click on the Start menu button
  2. Type cmd in the search box and press Enter. This will open a black Command Prompt window
  3. Type getmac /v /fo list
  4. Find the entry associated with your network card, typically labeled Local Area Connection for wired interfaces or Wireless Network Connection for wireless interfaces
  5. The value listed as the Physical Address is the Hardware MAC Address for that network card. It will be in the format XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX
  6. Type exit to close the Command Prompt window when finished
