To provide you with a more simple answer than the other textbook answers I see : 127.0.0.1 does not actually send traffic to your router and then back to your computer. Do not get the term "loopback" confused. All that a loopback address does is check your TCP/IP stack. This is the de facto troubleshooting step to test if your TCP/IP stack is configured ...

Typically you have a loopback adaptor (assigned 127.0.0.1, tho there's actually a block of these) and one or a few more. In this case, Q1: Yes Q2 No There's a few things that need to communicate internally with a system - a simple example would be that you'd use 127.0.0.1 (or ...

Is the IPv4 used to uniquely identify my computer/machine in the world or my ...

Question 1: The IPv4 address of your computer is, as the ipconfig command reports, 192.168.1.36.

As you mentioned, on a typical computer, 127.0.0.1 is the same as localhost. If you ...

There's nothing called "address of the local computer". IP addresses bind with network interfaces. If you have 5 LAN/Wifi cards (network adapters) in your computer then you can have 5 IPs for those interfaces. Here what you see is the adapter named "Local Area Connection" with IP address 192.168.1.36, while 127.0.0.1 is the address of the loopback adapter ...
