    You can make your Windows 10 PC visible or hidden on a local network, and in this guide, we'll show you how.
    On Windows 10, you can configure different network profiles depending on the network environment to keep your device more secure. If you're connected to the internet using a non-secure network, such as those available in coffee shops and airports, you can set the connection as "public" to hide your device in that location while also turning off file and printer sharing.
    When connecting to a trusted network, like the one at your home or place of work, you can configure the connection as "private" to make your computer discoverable and allow network users to access resources you may be sharing.
    In this Windows 10 guide, we walk you through the steps to make your device discoverable or hidden in any network environment using the Settings app.
