How change public to private network

Very simple network - two computers in a workgroup

One - Laptop - is used only for Quickbooks and locked in a cabinet when not in use.
The other - Desktop - is general purpose and availahble to anyone with logon credentials.

Both in same workgroup, they have identical user names and passwords, both get IP addresses from same gateway.

Wireless adapter is disabled on Laptop, so connected by cable only.

Here's the question:
On Desktop - Network\Properties says:   Network Connection Public Network
On Laptop/ Network\Properties says:      StJohn2 Private Network

It seems to me that both should be Private Network

Where/when/how did the Network name StJohn2 happen?
Leptop is a new machine in the mix and was set up by someone else.
How do I get them on the same set of settings?

Windows 10.  I might not be at that machine until after the moderator starts pinging me for neglecting this question, so I'll close now and start over if these answers don't solve my problem.  Thanks to you both.
No problem.
