Network DiscoveryÂ is a network setting that affects whether your computer can see (find) other computers and devices on the same network and whether other computers and devices on the same network can see your computer.
When network discovery is turned on, the device sends out signals over the network to search for other discoverable devices. This makes it convenient for you to share network resources among the devices connected to the network.
Windows creates a separate network profile for each network you use. You can turn on or off network discovery separately for eachÂ PrivateÂ andÂ PublicÂ network profileÂ type.
This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off network discovery for private and public networks on your Windows 11 PC.
