It’s common to forget the way back to your car in parking location or any place which you want to come back once you are done with your work.  It not only wastes a lot of time, but also energy. So, how do you make it easy? When using Windows 10 Mobile, the in-built map application lets you pin any current location to your start screen. So next time when you want to come back to the same place, all you need to open and follow the direction.
