    When I ask What's my location or what's the weather like, Cortana brings up an answer for location 200miles away based on my IP. How can I change it to my actual location? I have tried ?almost? all options in settings. Moreover Weather app shows my location correctly

    Hi Welcome to Windows Central. I'm assuming Cortana is the same on all devices, you might see if you can set some options here to help your issue with the weather and Cortana! Click on Cortana-Click on NoteBook- Scroll down to the bottom and click on Weather.
    If you need more help,please join the forum!

    Hello, I have already changed that weather settings - I´m tracking only my city. But still I get answers for my IP-address city.
    Device: Computer, no GPS.

    I think there is a "change your Default location" in the Maps App, try changing the default and see if that helps.

    Hi Try this method of asking Cortana about the weather! Here's 'How to' from the forum!

    PS Cortana is supposed to learn from your responses!

    So I got a little tired of dealing with this issue, so I wrote a program to work around it.
    Basically, it runs first at start-up and then every 15 minutes to stabilize the reporting of the default location. This works great for me - I'm currently running Windows 10 Version 1703.
    As I suspect it may be of help to others, I've released it as freeware.
    It's called FixMyLocation and can be found at www.rlatour.com/fml/index.html
    Hope this will be of help to you.

    This indeed returns the correct location I'm at but doesn't change my location with Cortana in any way.
