Computer thinks I'm in Huntington Park

2 years ago

When I am shopping on line at stores like Best Buy, Home Depot, BB&B, etc, my computer thinks I'm in Huntington Park, which is 40 minutes from where I live and not convenient to me. I have to change my location each time I go to one of these store's websites, and this location is never remembered but reverts back to Huntington Park.

Why would the computer think I'm in HP, since that is not even close to me? How can I tell my computer my actual zip code, which is 90045 instead of 90255? This is a minor annoyance, but I would like to fix it, and I cannot understand why this problem exists in the first place.

I am using Windows 10 on a desktop computer. I have a laptop as well, but I have not paid attention to where that thinks I am.

Let me know if I need to provide more information about my computer.
