Ubuntu – How to set static IP address


I have configured network adapter of guest Ubuntu to work in a bridged mode so I could ssh to it from the host machine.

The problem is that the guest Ubuntu ip address keep changing.

Even though it changes
within a very short range it is still takes time to configure Putty and other programs each time.

Is there a way to make the guest Ubuntu ip address to be static?

My guest OS has the full GUI.
