    Hi Gene,

    Thank you for sharing the outcome when you followed the steps on how to create a HomeGroup. Please follow these steps to change the network profile to Private:

    • Left click on the Wi-Fi icon at the bottom right side of the screen, near the clock.
    • Left click on Properties below your network name.
    • Under Network profile, change it to Private.
    • Create a HomeGroup again.

    Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    Try with Group policy editor (Start, type gpedit and hit Enter)

    Set properties for key
    shown in picture below. There should also be a way to do this in registry.
