    Location Service


    I have location for device ON, location for maps ON.
    When I try to show my location in Map I get the following message:
    We're not allowed to find you, Location settings are turned off for Maps.
    To help us find you, change this in Settings.
    Anyone know how to fix this?

    :)

    Just to make sure, is this switch the one that you have turned off?

    What browser are you using? I know that Google Chrome has its own location checkbox inside its settings (it doesn't follow Windows settings).

    Even though I have turned off all location services, I still see the icon (bullseye) for a few seconds every time I connect to the internet. What causes this and why?

    This problem seems to be new, as I cannot find any forums relating to this issue. I just tested maps on 3 PCS, running Windows 10 1511 10586.104, and all is good here. Hope someone has a solution.
