    It says it only shows you how to change to Public, Private or Domain. Wait is the home network location not a thing in win 10?

    EDIT: Hmm could it be that they just renamed home to private?

    Yes, from the tutorial

    Private network = A private network location type can be for home or small office networks, or when you know and trust the people and devices on the network. This setting allows your PC to connect to a homegroup and devices on the network, such as printers.
