Windows 10 location greyed out RRS feed

  • Question

  • Location icon is greyed out.  Also in privacy settings, under "location for this device is off"the CHANGE option has also greyed out. also how to turn on windows location platform in windows 10...i can't seem to find it in windows10...Permission to use location for all apps is off and also greyed out...hence not able to use Cortana also ... IT was working fine but i don't know what suddenly happened

    Windows and Drivers are up to date. No error message during installation.

    Infact everything was working fine. Cortana was also working fine after this latest update. Suddenly now Cortana wants to use location setting which it is now greyed out. This location was working perfectly till then. Nothing seems to turn on this location...In Privacy also, "CHANGE" button under "location for this device is off" is not responding..

    Problem is not only about Cortana but also other apps.  using LOCATION is off for all the apps and I can't seem to turn it on. I have come across some sites that "turning on windows location platform" has helped some of them. but in Windows 10 I am not able to find this setting also. PLZ HELP

  • In Windows 10, search for "Location Privacy Settings". This should provide you all the options you need for turning on location sharing and specifying how your location can be used.
