How to change your network location from public to home #WINDOWS 7



Step One




Log onto the network you wish to change the settings for.

Step Two


Open the Control Panel from the start menu.



Step Three


Open the Network and Sharing Center. This can also be access by right clicking on your Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection status icon in the bottom right-hand corner of Windows.



Step Four


Under the active networks list, you'll see the network your connected to and its location setting; either work, home, or public. Click on this if you wish to change it.



Step Five


In the new window, select which type of network location you wish to use.



Note: If you are connected to a domain network, you cannot change the location settings.
Which network location do I choose?

If you're not sure which network location you should use, then check out the following descriptions for each type.

Home network: For home networks or when you know and trust the people and devices on the network. Network discovery is turned on and computers on a home network can belong to a homegroup.

Work network: For small office or other workplace networks. Network discovery is on by default allowing you to see other computers and devices on the network and allows other users to see your computer. However, you can't create or join a homegroup.

Public network: For networks in public places like as coffee shops or airports. This setting keeps your computer from being visible to other computers around you and to help protect your computer from any malicious software.
