    Let me know if anyone else has noticed this. I did a search and didn't find anything.

    I used to be able to look for a place, say a hotel or restaurant, and be able to pin the tile to my phone's start screen. I can't seem to do this anymore. Now, the only options I get are share, edit, or mark as favorite. Why is that? I travel a lot, and it is so convenient for me to pin all the frequent places on my phone's start screen.

    If it matters, I'm in the US, have the Lumia Icon, and am running 8.1 Dev Preview.

    Thanks.

    If you have a website push the 3 dots ... On the below right side and than push PIN TO START

    I only see Share and Add. I used to be able to see Pin as well. Looks like I'll have to pin the website like you said, but this doesn't work when you want to pin a place without a website!

    Do you mean with place just plain text? If so then you also can copy it and past it in for example OneNote.
    Actual you can of course also copy links to OneNote. And put OneNote on your start screen. Probably not so nice if you want but ....

    You can still pin places on your start screen, but you have to do it through maps. After you search a place (using Cortana search) tap on the result and it should open up in maps. From there, you can either tap on the location result on the map or hit the 3 dots and tap on "search results". Once you select the place you want, it should give you an option to pin it to your start screen.
