Default location RRS feed

  • Question

  •  A few months back, I looked for a friend's address who lives in the UAE.  Since then, every time I start Bing Maps it defaults to the UAE instead of my home location.  Anyone know how to reset it?  I have been looking and looking but no luck.  I have set the Location to my local area but it did nothing.

    Just another frustration with Microsoft!

  • I'm assuming this is on the Bing Maps consumer site and has nothing to do with the Bing Maps Development API's (what these forums are for). If that is the case I suspect the issue is that your browser setting is for the UAE. To correct this go to and click on the "gear" icon in the top right corner of the page. Under location select the change country/region link. Select your default country of choice. This is a cross Bing setting and not a Bing Maps specific thing.
