There are multiple options to accomplish the same goal. I use a DHCP setting on my router to assign a fixed IP. If you prefer to assign the IP on the RPi itself, you can modify the /etc/dhcpcd.conf file.

Setting up an IP reservation in your router is the prefered method for any device. I had issues with my phone always grabing another devices IP. This way the router only gives out that IP to the device based on its MAC address and will not issue it to anything else if the device fails to or slow to load.

Turning off on wifi/ ethernet is done in the pi configuration.
sudo raspi-config
