Question Windows 10 thinks I'm connected to a public network when I'm not. Why is that?

Before we jump in, let me first say I'm still trying to get used to the new site layout, so i apologize if anything is wrong or misplaced. But anyway, I built a friends computer, and I'm just doing the usual benchmarks before i give it to him. When i was in the settings menu, something caught my attention. It classifies my network as a public network, when It's actually my private network at my house. This may sound like a minor issue, and perhaps it is, but things could be going awry under the hood because of this. I'd appreciate any feedback to help fix this. Thanks!
