Windows 10: My computer says I am in Romania!

    My computer says I am in Romania!

    Whenever I go to an online store checkout page the country is often pre-filled with Romania it occasionally happens in other circumstances too - I am in Spain! What could be causing the confusion. I use Google Chrome Canary.

    Your country is picked based on your IP, so if you have a public IP or use proxy/VPN, it can happen.

    Share your location on Chrome - Chrome Help

    You can actually tell Windows, where you live exactly by setting your location.
    Settings - Privacy - Location - Set Default - Find yourself on the map - Set.
