    Standard Users Unable to Change Network Profile from Public to Private


    My organisation has just started joining our endpoints to AAD using Endpoint Manager rather than using local AD. I have noticed since joining a device, standard users are unable to change the network profile from Public to Private, which they were able to do when connected to Local AD. It now asks for admin creds to change the setting.This is an issue as one of the company apps we use adds a firewall rule on install that blocks it from working on public networks. Not to mention I would rather have more restricted firewall settings for public networks.Ideally, I would like to be able to let use

    :)

  2. Windows 10 allow standard users to change network location from public to private.

    After many days to searching and trying other suggestions I am unable to find a solution to my problem.

    I am workings with windows 10 build 1803 & 1809.

    I have our systems set with an administrator account and a standard user account.

    Obviously when logged in under the Admin account everything works fine.

    When logged in under standard user account any new network connections default to public and I need to be able to give the user the ability to change network details and to private.

    Can anyone offer a solution to this problem ?
