    You can make your computer visible or invisible on a local network, and in this guide, we'll show you how to do it on Windows 10.
    Windows 10 allows you to configure different network profiles depending on the type of network you connect to keep your device a little more secure. When you're connected to a less secure network like at a coffee shop or airport, you can set the connection as "public" to hide your computer on the local network while also disabling printer and file sharing.

    If you're accessing a network you trust, such as at home or work, you can then set your Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection as "private," which makes your computer discoverable, and you're also able to share files and printers with other devices.
    In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to make your device discoverable or hidden no matter in which type of network you're connected.
