enter image description here

Here's how go to the admin products>categories and click your desired category you want to open. and look into the url of the category there you can find the category ID. I hope this helps you. There are lots of ways to determine the category ID's but this one is what I can offer you.

  • if you have any other way do let me know

    That's the best easy way for you to determine the category ID of your category. I use that method all the time. :) Aug 16, 2017 at 6:36
  • I have used the following code to display specific category products in the page. In the category_id=4011 I have 100 products. {{block type="catalog/product_list" column_count="4" category_id="4011" template="catalog/product/list.phtml"}} It's not displaying products. -Do I need to clear cache or not do let me know. @mazestricks

  • Please do reindex your site and clear you cache that might work. because if you change something specifically adding products or categories you need to reindex and clear the cache. Did you add something to the site? Aug 16, 2017 at 6:58
  • no I have not added added I have added the block code in the respective page where I want to display.
