Change Public Network to Private Network | Windows 10

Having upgraded numerous Windows 7 home based systems, I found the network seems to default to a “public network”.

That is hunky-dory if you are in a coffee shop or airport, but home based businesses should be set to a “private network”.

Let me show you how:

First, Click on the START button and then Click on Settings:


Click on Network & Internet:

Advanced options

Scroll down to Advanced options and Click on it. It will take you to this setting:


Turn ON – Make this PC discoverable.

This is the How – To for wireless connections.

Much better!
