    Now, we can see here it says, "Current status:
    not tracking geofences". Geo-fence - as you may already know - is a way to create a boundary around a place of interest to you. For example your home, your workplace or anywhere that is of interest to you. It allows your apps to create an experience for you when you enter those areas and it allows you to create a more personalized environment. Your applications can detect when you enter these zones and they can provide you with different services based on other things in the vicinity of that zone. This menu doesn't show any ways of enabling geofences.

    What you need to do is create a note using Cortana.
    Once you do that, it will turn geofences on and it will start tracking geofences. We need to go to Cortana. To do this, we can just press the search button - the magnifying glass at the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Press and hold that until Cortana appears.

    So what I am going to do is I am going to as Cortana to remind me to do something.
    Remind me to do something when I get home. Home will then become an area of interest and that will be geofenced. Home will then be represented as a zone of importance. I am going to press the microphone button and then I am going to ask Cortana to remind me.

    Cortana has understood the first part of my request which is to remind me to water the plants but she has not understood my second request which is the "when I get home" part of the reminder.
    Obviously my accent or pronunciation is not suitable for Cortana and you may also have some problems with this. We can just input this information manually. Here we have person place or time. You have to press Place.

    Here we have a location reminder.
    We are going to enter this information manually if we cannot do it using Cortana's voice recognition. We have the option to remind me when I arrive or depart. I would like to be reminded when I arrive so I will leave that there. I am going to press down on the text box and write my address. After that, I am going to press done.

    Now, if I take you back to the location menu, you can see at the bottom, it says, "Current status:
    Tracking Geo-fences". Now, the geofencing application has been activated. You now need to try to link this in with other applications you have in order to create zones of interest to connect with your other applications.
