Run traceroutes on Windows

Traceroutes can help identify a network problem. On Windows, perform a traceroute using the Command Prompt.

  1. Run cmd.exe for your version of Windows:
    • Windows 8: Right-click the Start menu and select Run. Then enter cmd and select OK.
    • Windows 10: In the Start menu, enter cmd, and select the Enter key.
  2. The MS-DOS Prompt or Command Prompt window will open. Enter tracert yourdomain.tld and select the Enter key.
  3. Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.18363.1256]
    (c) 2019 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

    C:\WINDOWS\system\tracert coolexample.com
  4. After the traceroute completes, select all (Ctrl+A) and copy (Ctrl+C).
  5. Paste (Ctrl+V) this into a text document (like Notepad or WordPad) so you can reference it later.
