Enable the Location Service in Windows 10
Edited by Lukward Thomason, VisiHow, Eng, Zolile and 3 others
Enabling Location Services on your Windows 10 device is sometimes necessary to properly use specific applications. For example; maps won't be able to give you on-the-fly directions without knowing your origin point. Other types of programs, such as Cortana also require access to your location to provide proper functionality. If you're a bit of a stickler for privacy, knowing how to disable and manage your device's location services quickly is essential.
To pinpoint your location, Windows uses a combination of GPS, IP Geolocation, cellular towers, and wireless access points. All information sent from your device is stripped of any personal data and focusses directly on positioning and location. Depending on your device's hardware, location accuracy may vary.
