There are different ways you can access the record id

 

Sttandard UI:

 

The record is normally displayed in the url

 

Example:

 

Url

https://na14.salesforce.com/001d000000Ar3CM

 

Record id:

001d000000Ar3CM

 

Visualforce UI:

Depending on how you've architected the page, if using a standard controller example.

 

You can write Account.Id to display the current record id.

 

Extension / Controller:

 

Use ApexPages.CurrentPage().getparameters().get('id') to access the record id.
