here is where to find the option: Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Advanced Settings > Windows Firewall with Advanced Security > Windows Firewall Properties > Domain / Private / Public Profile > Customize.

here are some screenshots for your reference:

As Bing says you can apply the firewall to different 'profiles' e.g. Domain, Work, Public, Private networks in the Advanced properties.
