First time you connect to a network you will get a pop up that actually are asking you if you want the network to be used as a “Private” or “Public” network, it just ask in a bit “confusing” way.
(Domain profile” are only available for domain joined computers and will be automatic selected if there is a domain controller on the network).
select “No” or if you do not select anything, it will be set as a “Public”
network. You will not be asked again, even if you do not answer anything.
The “Network and Sharing Center” will show it as a “Public network”
