Dell laptop, win 8.1 - I moved to new state.  How do I get my computer to show searches here rather than old state when doing a google search?

G'day jeb1088, and Welcome to BC !!


Have a read HERE


Apart from being quite informative, further down the page it states, "

Location, Webcam and Microphone

You can turn on or off location services, your webcam and your microphone from here and even customize what apps can use your location and what can’t."

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

Looked at this but not sure it is what I am trying to change.

When I go to major stores like Lowes, etc., sometimes the store location will be in Nashville, TN.  I am in Statesville, NC - several hundred miles from Nashville.  Some of them I have been able to change to My Store but if it is one I have not been to it shows the above.  Seems computer has been set to Nashville - how do I change it to Statesville.  This is when I am not on wifi - don't know what it would show if there, have never tried it. - jb
