    Hello @redturtle, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    You should be able to use Option 2 in the tutorial to set the name of the VPN profile as a private network.

    Set Network Location to Private or Public in Windows 10
    Hi Brink and thank you for the welcome :)

    I tried what you suggested but when doing this, i noticed that whenever i am connected to my VPN, the Windows network shows up as "unidentified network" instead of network 1,2,3 or whatever. So when i went into regedit and looked for networks, i found some but none called unidentified.
    There was one network with the value 0 so i changed it to 1 (private) but after checking, my VPN connection still shows as public.

    I am not really sure why it says unidentified network in Windows when i am connected to the VPN but it seems that this is the cause for the problem. If i could only find the VPN network in the list of networks in regedit, i think i would be able to change the value to 1.

    Hmm..not sure how to proceed with this. Any ideas?

    @redturtle,

    Since it's an unidentified network, you might see if using Option 3 may work to set this, but click on Unidentified Networks at step 3 and use step 6.

    Hello guys, it's my first post here so I'd like to start with a big thanks for all the good work you're doing. I've used your website to grab a lot of informations concerning registry tweaks.

    I'm building a custom version of Windows 10 for myself. Therefore, I want to automatically set my network to Private, so I apply this tweak during SetupComplete.cmd :
    Code:
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Signatures\010103000F0000F0010000000F0000F0C967A3643C3AD745950DA7859209176EF5B87C875FA20DF21951640E807D7C24" /v Category /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
    And I also call a powershell script with this inside :
    Code:
    Get-NetConnectionProfile | Where-Object { $_.NetworkCategory -match "Public" } | Set-NetConnectionProfile -NetworkCategory Private
    Thanks to that, I'm correctly connected to a private network at first logon. BUT, there is this prompt screen that I would like to get rid off :

    Any idea how to do so via a reg key ?
