    Now, there are two ways of finding your location
    .
    The first is using Cortana if you have Cortana activated on your phone. It should be activated normally if you live in the USA. If you don't live in the USA, then you can still activate it. To do so, you can find a video on this website to show you how to do that. So just search for that.

    If it's activated, as it is here, I can press it, and we can use it to find our location

    The first thing we're going to do is press the microphone button at the bottom right corner of the screen
    .
    Then we're just going to ask Cortana what my location is.

    As you can see, Cortana has found my location
    .
    There is a map here, and she has told me what I am near. She hasn't told me the exact street, but the map shows me more or less the street I am on.

    We can press on the map to open up the map function

    The other alternative, if you don't have Cortana activated, is to go to Maps, and then it will show you your location

    If you have moved around, and it hasn't actually updated your location, press the circles button at the bottom of the screen
    .
    That will refresh your position. Obviously, I'm not moving, so it's not going to move. But it would refresh if you've moved.
