How do I find the entry_id of a content item so I can reference it?

I am very new to Contentful. I read in the documentation in multiple spots that I can call a specific content by using the entry_id. I have not been able to find anywhere that tells me how to look this up. I would expect it would be in the editor, but did not see it there. I would imagine this is a very easy thing but it appears to be under-documented. Thanks for your help!

As you can see from our interactive documentation, you can also choose the desired programming language to see a code snippet that might help you.
