Unless you install something weird they can't most people don't have static ip addresses anyway.

Static IP means it wont change,

dynamic IP means it will change in days/months/years.

(Now I have dynamic IP, but it didn't change for half year or so)

 

You meant public IP rather.

Which means it's accessible from Internet (can be created server/daemon on it, with listening TCP/IP/UDP port). Somebody can try to connect to IP:port and gain access.

 

Reverse of public IP, is private IP,

which is inaccessible from Internet.

Like 192.168.x.x is not accessible from Internet (unless modem-router has port-forwarding feature enabled. Modem-router might be intercepted by hackers/evil government and modified to forward packets).

 

If somebody has private-dynamic IP address, but caught virus/Trojan,

and it'll connect to some external host,

it can send whatever they like.

 

So, we can have matrix:

public-static IP

public-dynamic IP

private-static IP

private-dynamic IP

 

The most common are public-static IP and private-dynamic IP.

On public-static IP anybody can have server/daemon of whatever they like service/server. Including their own.

On public-dynamic IP anybody can have it, but they have to use no-ip like service to update dynamic DNS.

On private-static/dynamic IP, people are screwed, and can't host anything.

But their computer can/must start communication first.

I'm sorry to tell you that you are being tracked all the time, and it has nothing to do with your IP address.

 

Perversely, the older your computer the harder it is for the modern tracking to work, Windows 10 is by far the worst of all.

 

Accessing your files is a different matter, you have more conrol here.
