Enable Windows 10 Location Services

This Windows 10 tutorial will show you how to enable your location services on your PC or Laptop.

By turning on your location Windows 10 will be able to pinpoint which area you are in, and you can also allow apps to access your location.

This can be very handy especially for apps such as Maps or Weather so that the information you get will be more accurate due to Windows knowing your location.

You can easily turn off the location services if you change your mind
