There are lots of bundled applications in Windows 10. This video introduces some of the more simple bundled apps including the Maps application, which you can use to search for specific locations and see them on a map and the Weather app.
- [Instructor] There are lots of small,…essential applications…that come bundled in Windows 10.…Some of them have some depth and rich features,…but you can also get started…with basic functions in these applications really quickly.…So, let's go through a brief introduction…of some of these bundled apps.…One app that I use a lot is Maps,…so I'll go into the Start Menu…into the list of all applications…and I'll launch Maps from here.…And I think this is going to be easier…if we switch this into the full screen mode.…Now, the first time you launch Maps…it may ask for permission to access your location,…and you can also manually change that setting…in the App Privacy section of Windows Settings.…
Assuming that permission is enabled,…the first thing that I usually do…is find my current location on the map.…So, using this little panel with tools…over here near the right side,…this button here will locate my current location.…So, I can see where I am on the map.…Not all computers can find their current location,…but if you're connected to a WiFi network…
