    When I bring up Edge on Windows 11 , it shows a wrong location for me. How do I change it to my correct location?


    Thank you,

      Is your location correct in the Maps and Weather apps?

      Well that’s interesting.  I went to the weather app and it showed the same incorrect location. Using “search location” on that page, I searched for my correct location.

      Having done that, and restarting for a different reason, now both the main page and the weather app show my correct location.

      It looks like all is well now.

      Thank you steeviebops,

      Good to hear!

      I had a similar issue where anything that used the Windows location API would detect my location as a city about 40 miles away from where I actually am. It took me almost a year to work it out. My laptop has a WWAN LTE card in it which also has a built-in GPS. I put my laptop beside a window and opened the Maps app. It started with the wrong location but eventually changed once it got a lock from GPS. I did this a few times over the course of a few days and it eventually corrected itself on other devices too.

      Interesting I have tried to put in Myrtle Beach SC for a while in the ms weather app but come up with an error. Conway(near there) IS accepted. (NO I do not live there)
      Some kind of block??


      Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
