Here  is the step:

To Verify and See if your Computer Name is Hidden or Unhidden

    Open Command Prompt
    In the command prompt, type Net Config Server and press Enter. (See screenshots below)
    If it is hidden, then you will see Yes to the right of Server hidden.
    If it is unhidden, then you will see No to the right of Server hidden.

To Hide your Computer Name from Displaying in Network

    In the command prompt, type in bold below and press Enter.
    Net config server /hidden:yes
    You will get a The command completed successfully message afterwards.

To Unhide your Computer Name to Display in Network

    In the elevated command prompt, type in bold below and press Enter.
    Net config server /hidden:no

    Exit Command Prompt then Restart the computer to apply.
