    Hey guys,

    I see that a lot of people have been saying Cortana can't locate them.
    Well I had this problem too until this morning.
    After a day and a half Cortana finally recognized where I lived and asked if the address was my home.
    I clicked yes of course since I was home.
    NOW when I ask her where I am she correctly pulls up my home address.
    I haven't tried this for other locations, but I thought I should share the good news

    Give her some time; she needs to learn

    So all i need is just wait to get her figures out where i live? Then ask her "Where am I?" again? You sure?

    Remember guys, this is after she already recognizes where you live or work.. She'll do that on her own :) Maybe we can give her hints though by asking her to add a reminder for things to do at home or texting someone that you're leaving home now.. etc

    So did she just pop up and ask you where you live?! Does that mean I have to keep Location ON always?

    Yupp i was watching a movie and heard her beep once.. So I checked and voila.. Ehm yea I would think so; I keep mine on just in case I need to use the "Find my phone" option

    Sweet. I didn't know she figured out where I lived and worked. (I added those myself on Day One anyway.) It's a neat little feature.

    Yea I did too, but removed them since she could't pinpoint my exact location.. It wasn't a deal breaker for me :D

    I manually added my Home and Work on the first day, but I can ask Cortana "Where am I?" anywhere and if it isn't one of my favorite places, she says, "I can't be sure, but it seems like you are near [Address]."

    Yupp I have that too, but some were saying that Cortana only pulled up a Bing search when asking her the question (Which also happened to me lol)

    Is there a way to edit the address of an existing place?

    When I ask her she says "I can't say for sure, but you are likely at (my exact address) in Philadelphia", which is correct. But seems to me she should say "you are home".
