I sometimes need to access a Windows 10 PC with TeamViewer remote software. I sometimes can't find the printer's IP address, it doesn't appear under Control Panel > right click on Printer > Properties > Web Services tab (this tab doesn't show up sometimes).

I know you can get it on the printer's web interface, but what if I don't have the printers web user/password?

Is there any other way to find the printer's IP address?

Any help much appreciated

Are you accessing the remote PC or the printer?
How is the printer connected?
I'm accessing the remote computer and the printer (I can't think of accessing a printer with Teamviewer). I sometimes can't know if it's connected on WIFI or Ethernet or cable (for example: it maybe connected on WIFI and Ethernet but either the wireless or the cable connection isn't working).

From the PC, you can't tell WiFi vs ethernet. At best, all you can see is an IP address. Often, not even that.
Network vs USB? ASK THE USER.

"How many wires are coming out of the back of the printer?"
"OK, discounting the one that goes to the wall, what does the other one look like ?"
etc, etc, etc...
