    Treat all future networks as public setting


    Hi folks. Quick question - In Windows 7/8 there was a setting, a small checkbox "Treat all future networks as public and don't ask me again".
    You can see it in this picture - http://www.ezlan.net/Win7/net_type.jpg

    In my version of Windows 10, I don't appear to have that option. I could try deleting this registry key ...

    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\NetworkLocationWizard\
    Delete the key: HideWizard

    I thought I'd run it by you guys first. Perhaps there's a simpler way than export, delete key, if wrong result import saved registry file.

    Have I missed a setting somewhere to set the network location?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello finlay,

    You might see if using OPTION THREE in the tutorial below using AllNetworks instead may do the trick.

    Thanks Brink. That's much simpler. I've tried the following on "All networks".

    Just have to wait and see if it stops asking to set network location
    There doesn't appear to be the same option present in Win7/8 to change the name of a network ...

    Unless I've missed something?

    Great news so far.

    Yeah, I missed being able to simply change the network name like that, but you can use an option in the tutorial below to change the network name in Windows 10 as well.
