  1. windows 10 thinks I am in a different city very far away from where i live


    Windows 10 apps including Weather, Edge, Find My PC, etc. that pull a location think I am in lyons, indiana. However, I am located in Chicago.


    If I use a non-Microsoft product like Google Chrome or Firefox to look at Google Maps or even Bing Maps, those programs can get my precise location correct.


    How can I fix this so that my Microsoft apps and my computer think I'm in the correct place?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows live mail log on

    Hi Norm,

    For us to isolate the issue, we will need to ask you a few questions:

    • When was the last time that you were able to sign in on your Windows Live Mail account?
    • Have you tried to sign in on a different computer or device?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    Regards.
