For that command you need to open an elevated command prompt. Here's the tutorial: Elevated Command Prompt

Edit: Or when you open a regular command prompt (from this tutorial) just type 'cd C:\Windows\System32' (without quotes) to get to the right directory.

Basically you just need to get to 'System32' to run ipconfig

Hello PrettyGeek, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could click on the X boxed in red at the top right corner to close the command prompt. It's the same process as closing any other window.

For the ipconfig thing, you could copy and paste this below at the prompt in the command prompt, and press Enter to see the ipconfig information for your computer.

ipconfig /all

OPTION TWO in the tutorial below can give you more details about this command.

IP Address - Locate and Find for Your Computer

Hope this helps,
Shawn

To exit the command prompt, just type Exit then press Enter and the command prompt window will close or use Brink's quicker method if that's what you prefer.

Ok, I am stuck. My command prompt is 100% gone. Including from the System32. What do I do? I while ago my services were all shut off. I manually reset them, does the command prompt have a service?

If you have a prior restore point, you can try to recover the cmd.exe in the system32 folder with Shadow Explorer.
