Windows 10: Assign network profile

While Windows 7 allowed you to select a network profile while connecting to a network, Windows 10 doesn’t do so anymore. If you run into issues because of a public network profile you need to make some adjustments in the registry.

  1. Open the registry editor by pressing Win+R and entering regedit
  2. navigate to the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows NT\ CurrentVersion\ NetworkList\ Profiles\ <profile number>
  3. Adjust the value of the entry Category to your liking
    1. 0 = public
    2. 1 = private
    3. 2 = domain

In Win 7 64 bit, before Windows (Monthly Rollup) August 14, 2018—KB4343900, you could use Regedit:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Windows NT\CurrentVersion\NetworkList\Profiles
to delete your profile list.. but after KB4343900 you can not.
