  2. Changing Public to Private Networks and Vice versa

    Here is another way to do it.

    Open File Explorer

    In the Navigation pane, right click 'Network'

    Click Properties

    Under 'Control Panel home' click Change advanced sharing settings

    There you should be able to change your network profile from private to public or vice-versa.

    Changing Public to Private Networks and Vice versa

    Community

    With Windows 10 version 1803 can we no longer change from private to public networks (and vice versa). In previous version this could be accomplice from the "Network and Sharing Center" dialog. But that option doesn't seem to exist any longer so all my
    connection (wifi) are Public now.
