Hello everyone

I use Bing as my browser and the Bing location preference is set at Chicago, IL. I live in Des Moines, IA. and I want to change my location preference to Des Moines. I have tried everything I can think of like typing in Des Moines in the location and click save, doesn't work. I've tried searching the net for some clues and tried a lot of them, none work. Everytime I exit Bing and go back, there is Chicago again. I can type in Des Moines everytime I look for something but that is a hassle. Any suggestions? I know I'll get crap about using Bing but I like it.

Have you tried or followed the steps outlined here: Can the location settings be changed on Bing? Another option might be clearing all browser cache and cookies prior to making your location change. I don't use Bing or IE so I really don't have any exposure to what you might need to do. And No, I won't make any 'Bing' comments. :wink:
