Windows - Unable to run the ipconfig command



Issue


I'm unable to run the ipconfig /all command, the following error message is displayed instead:
"ipconfig" is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Solution


Launch the command prompt as administrator:

Windows 8.1 - Disable the display of recently opened items in the Jump Lists
Windows 8.1 - Don't use the index when searching in files folders for system files
