    Windows Maps Opens and then crashes.

    I cannot set a default location because windows maps opens and then crashes... It had my default location before I don't know why it doesn't now. Is there a way to enter your location without windows maps? My network connection seems to be slower since this happened.

    Try resetting your Windows Maps app. To do this go to Settings, Apps and Features, select Maps and click on Advanced Options.
