Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to add a favorite location to the Microsoft Maps application when using a Microsoft Lumia 535.
Press the power button on the right hand side of the screen to turn the phone on.
Swipe the lock screen up to reveal the home screen.
On the home screen, find and tap the Maps application.
Maps is a blue tile with a white map on it. If the Maps tile is not pinned to your home screen, swipe left and find it in the applications menu.
Find the area you want to favorite and press and hold your finger on top of it.
The application will drop a pin on the location you pressed.
To save this location as a favorite, press on the pin.
A new screen will appear with several options; press on the favorites icon at the bottom of the screen.
The favorites icon is a white star shaped icon with a plus sign.
The location can be put in one of the three categories:
home, work or other.
The favorite location can be given a nickname.
The nickname helps differentiate between multiple saved locations.
Press the save button which looks like a white floppy disk in a white circle.
It is located at the bottom of the screen.
Go back to the map and press the menu button.
The menu button is an icon with three horizontal dots located at the bottom right of the screen.
A new menu will pop up with one of the options being "favorite places".
All your saved locations will be displayed in this menu; press any of the saved locations.
Press "directions" to get directions to that location.
The menu will also have other information about the location.
