I borrowed the RPI 3B from a friend's friend. hence I don't know the hostname so that I can ping the RPI to know its IP address. Hence I am following this tutorial to get its IP address.
According to the tutorial that I am following to get the IP address, he is using
Advanced IP scanner. So the steps are :
Step 1 : Go to Network and Sharing center
Step 2 : Since I am also connected to my institution wifi, the tutorial asked me to configure the "Internet connection sharing" for my wifi. I changed it to Ethernet by checking the "allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection" option.
Step 3 : Now go the raspberry ethernet network connection(which is my raspberry pi), click on properties and then assign IP address to the raspberry which I did by entering "192.168.137.1" and then the subnet which was automatically filled to "255.255.255.0"
Step 4 : Now open the app Advance IP address scanner and scan the IP address by entering the range "192.168.137.0-192.168.137.244".
Step 5 : Now you can see the IP address along with other devices IP on the screen.
But I am unable to view the IP address of my raspberry PI on the the app. Where am I going wrong. How can I get the IP address of my RPI so that I can connect to it via PUTTY?

Update with info from comments:
I don't have access to the gui, I just got the RPI from friend and then I flashed my sd card and then connected it through ethernet to my computer.
I was talking about clicking on network settings in windows for my ethernet connection.
ethernet connection settings I was network status -> Network and sharing center and then clicking on my ethernet connection to which RPI was connected.
