    Cortana and Location settings


    After a restart, Cortana always requests that I allow Location settings. I do that, and all is well, until the next restart, when the whole process needs to be repeated. It seems the location setting turn off by itself!!Please help

    Have a look at the location settings and make sure they are turned ON. Further down the screen shown below you will find all the Apps listed that use Location and you can select whether or not you want Location allowed for that App.

    There is a tutorial which shows various ways for handling location services. You might find one of the alternative methods like option 4 works better for you.
