Location awareness settings gone

2017-10-27, 14:43 PM

I have a Thinkpad X1 Yoga with Windows 10 and the Lenovo Settings app disappeared / merged into Lenovo Companion app.  I can no longer find the Location Awareness settings that used to be in Lenovo Settings app.  I used it to automatically change the default printer based on my location.  It worked much better than having Windows 10 do it.  What happened to Location Awareness settings???

Location awareness has been temporarily removed due to some conflicts with the latest version of Windows 10.  We are investigating whether it is possible to bring it back later.

Thanks for the reply.  Hopefully you'll be able to bring it back.  I work at several locations (plus home) and Location awareness was quite useful for me.
