Configuring app access to your data isn’t rocket science if you just want to rely on the Settings app. In Windows 10, you can find app permissions at the following location:
Settings > Privacy > App permissions
There are dedicated sections for all permissions, including for access to the location, camera, microphone, notifications, contact, calendar and more.
Each section can be further expanded to read more information and then to configure with additional options, as it’s the case of the location menu, for instance.
You can enable and disable location, turn off the location for specific apps, and even set a default location for apps and services that can’t detect your location accurately.
As part of Microsoft’s efforts to provide more privacy controls and to offer increased transparency, users are also allowed to clear the location history on the computer.
