How to change network location from Public to Home?


  • It seems that the Network and Sharing Center panel in windows 8 is little different with windows 7, does anyone know how to change the network location from Public to Home?

  • In Network and Sharing Center under "View your active networks" click on the one you want to change. (If it's currently public it will say "Public network.")

    Click "Yes, let other people see content that I share on my PC."

    It will change to "Private" and also allow you to setup a HomeGroup.
