Get windows IPv4 and nothing else

cls && ipconfig | find "IPv4"
May be useful to get user's ip address over the phone, as users struggle to read through a long ipconfig result.
Sample Output
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :w.x.y.z

jedifu, fair point. I guess it's more useful if you can also email/IM the user. scantydd, I don't have an XP machine to test on. You could use find "IP Address"
