This short post is by way of an appeal to those of you with better computer skills than I possess.
For the last week or so, I appear to have relocated to Greece, at least as far as Google is concerned. Any search tab declares ‘Google Greece’ next to the box, and if I enter Google Maps, Greece is always shown as my start point, and current location. I have reset that location, and it will show Beetley at the bottom of the page. I have followed Google help pages slavishly, taking every step suggested, in efforts to establish my correct place in the computing world. But it has all been to no avail. I still pop us as in Greece on Google Maps, and every web search starts with Google Greece as my default provider.
I managed to change the language from Greek to English, but that’s not the point, as I’m sure you will understand. I have nothing against being in Greece I hasten to add, and nothing against anyone or anything Greek. I just cannot comprehend how it happened, and I would like to return to being where I actually reside. I would like my searches to suggest things near to me, not things basking in the Aegean sun. I would prefer my start point on Google Maps to at least be in Great Britain, rather than some unspecified point closer to Athens.
I have tried and tried. I have reset my location countless times, contacted Google Help, asked on forums, and if I had much hair left, I would have pulled it out by now. So dear friends, it is over to you, or anyone you might know who is good with this stuff. Any ideas?
Thanks in anticipation, Pete.
Updated 12.03.15 After another hour wading through Google search settings and options, I have got a headache. I can only come to this final conclusion.
