    Oh, thank you so much. I have just spent 3 hours googling and trying to find out from Microsoft (worthless) how to change from my Public Network (still don’t know why it was set up this way) to Private Network. I updated the Registry and BAM! I am in business. Took all of 5 minutes. You are a Heavens’ sent.

    Hi Thanks, Powershell solved the problem. After trying numerous ideas that are only applicable to that win 10 version and not mine on the net. It is hard to believe how hard Microsoft have made this, as I am running the latest Win 10 Home latest version updates. 10 March 2018.

    Great article, but absolutely useless if I can’t print it out and take it with me.

    Thanks for this. My home computer was, as you said defaulted to “Public network” and “non-discoverable.”

    The links “change network location” does not show up on my two Windows 10 laptops. This same information is all over the Internet.

      If this is an issue on a domain, where the sharing indicates it is NOT using domain, sharing, then probably also the network shows as “not identified” instead of the domain name. If so, then try going to IPV4 properties, advanced, DNS suffix and add your FQDN.
