There are "global" and "private" IP Addresses. The IP Addresses you see in "ipconfig /all" are private IP Addresses. And the IP Address you search and saw on the Internet, is your global IP Address.

 

The difference between a global and a private IP Address, is that private IP Addresses can not access the Internet. Network Address Translation (NAT) will translate the private IP Address into a global IP Address. And with the global IP Address, the Internet can be accessed.

What do you mean by Your IP Address?  Are you talking about what you get from What is My IP?  That will return your public IP address, this is what web sites see when you connect to them.  If you have a router you might have an IP address of 192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x, those are private IP addresses and will not route on the Internet.
