I've had my Surface on "lockdown" (by altering settings personally) and changed something to prevent location detection on it. But I will now be using it out of the house and wish to have the "find my device" option. This is sadly greyed-out. I'm 99% sure it's something I've turned off in the past since I just kept it at home. Additionally when I click the Find My Device is off -> Change button, Settings crashes (the window disappears).

Additionally, I tried turning Geolocation Service on, but when I hit OK it says "The system cannot find the file specified".

    What exactly do you mean by “lockdown”? Third-part software or built-in feature? Edit your question – Ramhound Dec 6 '17 at 0:18
  • Like @Ramhound says, we'll have to know what you did to the computer to begin to have an idea how to fix it. – music2myear Dec 6 '17 at 0:30
  • I altered everything myself, all in services.msc to keep privacy to a maximum. – Asinine Dec 6 '17 at 3:27
