Windows 8.1 – Change Network Type (Public-Private, Private-Public) Updated on February 19, 2015 By Windows Guy 13 Comments The way you change the network type has changed since Windows 8. Now you have to make the change in PC Settings. Video Rating: 4 / 5 Find More Configure Windows 8.1 Articles By Windows Guy 13 Comments Joli Ballew February 19, 2015 Emannuel, its been moved! I am not at my computer now but thsts why you cant find it! Gandhi Gaming February 19, 2015 i dont have that find devices and content thing Aphetorusbull February 19, 2015 What is the point of creating the three profiles if you have to memorize what settings are associated with each profile. That completely undermines the entire idea of having profiles. I sooooo hate Microsoft. Why do the make security setting of all things such a challenge and a moving target. For crying out loud security should be the most intuitive of all settings and M$ is playing hide and seek with it. I just imaged a machine with 8.1 and now “Network” isn’t even an option in the PC settings, what a total cluster F&**%$ Drew Martell February 19, 2015 I like how they change it now in every incremental release. Spencer Evans February 19, 2015 thanks! Emanuele Vicalvi February 19, 2015 I swear I can’t see that command anywhere Peter Bohus February 19, 2015 I woul but i downloaded win 8 from win 7 so now i cant update it dont work can you tell me how on windows 8 because i tried for uears firat day it worked then it disnt but i reinstalled i and ayatem but still not working i have it as public the hamachi network Katies Aura February 19, 2015 after a modem change my option thought i was on a public netowrk innstead of a provate home network , your turotial fixed it :D Kyle Fox February 19, 2015 Thank you for this video.. Just another reason why Microsoft needs to get their heads out of their A$$ and fix this horrible OS family (this just shows that 8.1 is even less intuitive than 8.0).. When will Microsoft learn that the “tablet world” and the “desktop world” do not blend smoothly and their implementation of it is just plain disappointing. Windows Vista was a bad OS from the sense it was slow, but it still maintained common sense functionality.. This is the exact opposite.. Dave Steele February 19, 2015 does not work for me. Cant get it to read private. Mark Konior February 19, 2015 Thank you! Windows 8 is terrible! Peter Bohus February 19, 2015 please tellme how I do it on windows 8 because I have Hamachi and I cant change it to private it is on public netmwork:( Sean Nash February 19, 2015 I have window 8.1 on my home wifi network.
