  3. Windows 10: Services\Geolocation Service\ Startup Type: Disable\"Trying to Enable on 'Manual' or 'Automatic'..

    I also found this information about Windows 10 geolocation service:

    "

    Geolocation

    After disabling the Geolocation Service by changing startup type to Disabled, attempts to re-enable it will fail with an error message. As the Geolocation Service can no longer be started, Geolocation will
    remain disabled on the device and prevent location based functionality from working. To work around this issue, manually delete the following regkey using regedit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lfsvc\TriggerInfo\3.

    Geolocation Services

    Hi Paola,

    I have tried that. The Change button does not work. The Geolocation services is disabled in Services.MSC. and cannot be restarted.
