    Question about Cortana: Weather and Location Reporting


    How do I set Cortana to automatically detect my weather location?

    She has asked me to enter my City for weather locations.

    But, I want her to automatically detect my location instead of me having to do it by putting in my city.

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks Kari. It keeps asking for my city. My Laptop automatically detects my location. Why isn't my Desktop doing it? Below is the screenshot of what I am talking about.
