    My laptop has been stolen, and while "Find My Device" is turned on, the location isn't. Is there a way I could remotely turn this setting on.

    Unable to turn on the Location from the Location Settings.

    Hi Rafiul,

    It is possible that the
    GPS chipset
    is not working properly causing your location settings to be
    disabled or cannot be turned on. Kindly run the
    Hardware and Device Troubleshooter
    and check if there's any changes. To run the
    troubleshooter, follow these steps:


    • On the search bar, type
      Troubleshooting
      and hit
      Enter.

    • Choose
      Hardware and Sound.

    • Click on the
      Hardware and Devices
      to run the
      Troubleshooter.

    If the issue
    persists, we suggest that you contact your
    computer/laptop's manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.

    Hello Tharun,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft community.

    I understand your concern about the issue and help you out.

    I would require more information to help you better.


    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    • Please specify the steps tried by you turn on the location?

    • What is the exact and complete error message you get when you try to turn ON?

    • Did you make any changes to the computer prior to the issue?

    • Which antivirus program is installed on the computer?

    I would suggest you to check if the following service is enabled. if it is enabled, disable and re-enable the service.


    • Click on Start.

    • Select settings > Privacy > Location.

    • Select Change, and then turn
      Location for this device on or off .
    The Change button controls the Windows location service for the device, including all user accounts on the device. The
    Change button only appears for admin accounts. (Every device has at least one admin account—usually an admin is the person who set up the device.) If you have an admin account on your Windows 10 device, select
    Change, and then turn Location for this device on or off .
