    Whenever I check the Bing map through my PC upgraded to windows 8, I see that the home location is displayed incorrectly. I need to change it into correct location. What are the steps for that?

    Bring up the charms menu by pressing the Windows key +C key on the keyboard. Navigate through that menu and click the ‘Search’ option. Make a single click on ‘Settings’ option afterwards and type location into search box. Select ‘Allow apps to use my location’ from search results and enable it. You can also change the regional settings and see whether it resolves the issue. This, select ‘Change location’ from search results obtained after typing location into the search box. After that, make necessary changes in ‘Home location’.
